Am new to wide five hubs and are going to be running them on the rear of my car. Just want to make sure I do this right. I have the hub with the bearings in them and then two nuts and two washers. I know they go on the outside but what do I need the two washers for I could undrstand double nutting it but do you put the washers on first or washer nut washer nut. Please let me know. Any help is apprciated.

If the washers have holes in them they are lock washers. They go on after the nut and fit into the key slot. There should be three small screws that go through the lock washer holes into the nuts to lock them into place. Only one washer and nut per side.

some older set-ups used two washers, one between the inner nut and the bearing ( a round washer with a tang on the inside to keep it from spinning)
and one lock washer between the two nuts ( washer with tangs on the outside that get bent over to keep the nut from turning)
