Default change to summer tires and wheels

Hi,

I am just wondering how to change tires with wheels on these Acura cars. I used to have VW cars and all I do is loose the four nuts that holds the wheel then pull the wheel out install the new wheel(with tire) and screw back the four nuts and that's it. On the Acura it looks the big center nut needs to be
unscrewed. But I see there's a nip on it. Do I pry open the nip to unscrew it ?
It seems to me this will be a weak spot the next time I mount the new wheel.
Any idea ?

Peter

No, you don't need to touch that. It's as simple as removing the 5 lug nuts (yay upgraded from 4!). Make sure you re-torque them to 80 ft-lbs.
