Torquing my nuts
08/14/23 at 09:15:31
 
A LUG NUT came up missing on the trail friday.
So I am checking the torque on each wheel.
The Shop manual says for my 2014 I should torque the nuts to 30 lbs plus a quarter turn.
For the 2022 it says I should torque the nuts to 120 lbs.

30 lbs is handtight plus a bit and seems very low, especially compared to the 120 lbs for the 2022.

Does this make sense to anyone? Comments? Grin

Yes, that is what I did as well.
The question still stands however.

Depending on nut design and thread pitch, that extra 1/4 turn might be raising the torque more than you think. Why not try doing that 1/4 turn with a torque wrench just to see. If you use a preset wrench, try 80 ft-lb and see if that trips. You probably should back off and start over each time for a proper test.
