13" wheel nut torque
« on: July 06, 2019, 10:41:00 AM »
Good morning everyone,
I just replaced the tires on our 13QBB.  I had a really hard time removing them since the lug nuts were soooo tight, way too tight.  My air impact wrenche couldn't unscrew some of them!  So I checked for the proper lug nut torque for the 13" wheel in the Livin Lite owner's manual and they say 75 ft/lbs.  That seems a little low don't you think??  I was thinking somewhere around 90 ft/lbs should be perfect but maybe I should stick with what the manual says?  What is your experience on this matter?

You need to measure the lugs to see what diameter they are- torque is based on that.
Once you know that look at this chart-

Ok thanks for the chart.  I will have a look at the stud size.
