I've read where the clicking sound comes from the rim/wheel lug nuts not being torqued tight enough, 140 ft lbs of torque is recommended as far as I know ...

^^^This

Not sure what the torque spec is for the wheels you're using, but I'd smoke the lugs down and see if the noise goes away.

I'm just assuming he's running stock rims/wheels now since he implied replacing them with aftermarket rims/wheels & why I gave him the 140 torque specs for the wheels ...

I haven't tried the grease trick and yes stock rims and tires and yes they are torqued to 155 high as mine will go its a 2014 and has the blue in the threads of the nuts. I like the stock rims but if getting different ones and maybe a better rotor would end it ide be all for it

Hard to get better then the stock rotors for the cost. Guess I'm a lucky one, never had the click issue.
