Lug Nut torque

Postby Salsa [OP] » Nov 02 2011, 3:35pm

I was wondering what lb/ft torque should I use on my 2011 CrewCab lug nuts (20" wheels)

Another good source if you can't find it in the manual or don't have one is belle tires website. I believe they have a chart for lug torque.

LOL EKinMN!!!


I took one nut off to check if the ones I had bought at Costco for the winter setup were the right ones and..... surprise!!!!

The ones installed at the factory on my truck are no way installed at 140lb-ft..I had no trouble removing them without applying much pressure!

Always remember to re-torque after a 100 miles or so of having the lugs off. They definitely need to "re-seat".
