George, the torque spec changed from year to year. I torque mine to 115 ft. lbs. and call it a day

according to the manufacture recommended dose of grunts - its two grunts and a small fart.

tighten it down til it gets loose again, then back it off a quarter, or 135 ft lbs, whichever you choose.

Wouldn't it be great if some retard did that because he saw a chrysler tech say that? lol Nice way to f up someones studs. I know you were kidding, and I did laugh, but I would hate to see some 16 year old kid with his first car try that.

135 ft-lbs is what the stockers need, won't be any different for different wheels. I can't even count the number of times I've seen Dodge Ram's on the side of the road with one of the front wheels missing, like it just comes off. If 135 seems high, don't worry, it's NOT....I even tend to go up to 145 ft-lbs just to be safe.

I used to to torque my Stock 20's at 110 ft lbs and had no issues.
I just got the Dick Cepek DC-1 Rims and torqued the lug nuts to 110 ft lbs and put maybe 75 miles on them and had my drivers rear wheel make alot of noise - 4 out of 5 lug nuts where loose on the one wheel and on the other 3 wheels one or two of the lugs nuts were loose as well.

Just to reconfirm - Rubberfrog is running the same rims as me - what are you torqueing yours to and have you had them loosen up at all since?

I will torque them at 135 ft lbs unless someone else has a diffrent answer

if im not mistaken, new wheels need to be tightened a couple times right after you put them on. Mine were that way as well.



I always torqued mine to 105-110 and never had an issue, didnt know factory recommended 135

They changed it a few times I think. There was a whole debate/thread on it years ago. Some said 110 others said 135. I just do 110 and i have never had any issues.
