I haven't checked lugnut torque, etc. in years. The vehicle & tire manufacturers recommendations for tire rotation on my vehicles is at least once per year based on my annual mileage. The road hazard warranty I bought for $10/tire includes free balancing & rotation every 5k miles so I haven't done anything with lugnuts in years (except for my Wing w/single sided swing arm & 5 lugnuts)Art
Yes, but don't you ever walk around your vehicle and look to make sure that you have all of your lug nuts?
Had a tire repaired in February.Counter guy: OK, you're all done, and your truck is parked right outside.Me: Great. Why is that one wheel leaning?They forgot to reinstall the lug nuts. I cannot understand why it didn't just fall off when they moved it. It was close, though.
I saw a wheel head out in front of me and toward the ditch after a tire rotation. (!) It's hard to find good help any more..
I guess I've been lucky! I've noticed that the Discount Tire place I go to has a different assosciate torque wheels after they're installed, I assume the Torque Guy is tightening to the correct value.
Not if it's the guy at my local tire shop. Had to use a 2 ft pipe on my 2 ft breaker bar to get them loose. I always check after anyone takes a wheel off. If I had a flat I never would have gotten the wheel off with the tire change tools.
Those lug nuts look like the horrible type Ford uses on the F-150, the 7/8Ē steel nut has that stainless Ďcapí over it, 21mm. I changed out break pads and rotors on my Sonís 2017 F-150 a couple weeks back. Ford spec for a F-150 is 140 foot pounds toro on the lug nuts. When removing the nut the cap deforms and is very hard to get out of the socket. I bought all new solid steel lug nuts and threw out the crap Ford units. One nut was so tight it stripped on the wheel stud, it took me 2 hours to center drill and die grind off that last miserable nut and then had to get a new wheel studI think many people donít realize how high the torque setting is on these lug nuts. The F-300 is 165 foot pounds torque!!!
Thanks for the tip.But. seriously where is Huzo when you need him Tom
