    Torque specs for lug nuts



    I rotated my tires the other day, but wasn't sure what to torque the lug nuts. I have a 08 with the 18x8 steel wheels. I torqued them to 98 ft/lbs.

    I found this pdf that states the torque for the steel wheels should be 154! Seems high. What do you guys think?

    It is supposed to be 154 pounds for the steel wheels.

    I can't tell you off hand but have read it several times in my owners manual, I do know the steel wheels have higher torque than the 20" alum.

    Thanks guys for confirming for me. I thought the 154 was high, but if that is what is says, then.... Now I have to go out in the garage and get those things torqued down before I drive it again.

    IMHO
    the steel have higher tq than the alum because they can handle it. the alums would be damaged if they were tq'd that high
