Mine said 120 - 140,,

Don't forget to return the wrench to zero or near zero or calibration will suffer.

Mine don't, I've been torqueing to 110 lb/ft for the last 8 yrs on the same alum rims. Seems to be working. Haven't cracked a wheel or lost one yet.

Put new tires all around last year and we checked it on line at the tire shop and on our 16" aluminum wheels it was 95. checked them twice after and only once was there any slack to pick up. I carry a 1/2" torque wrench at all times.

Aluminum and steel wheels flex differently and therefore may be seated differently against the hub so that is the reason for the different torque values and re-torque requirements. I torque my 15" aluminum wheels to mid-spec of 95 ft-lb per the mfg values.

Also, as was stated earlier, don't leave a torque wrench tensioned or completely relaxed as it will affect it's calibration. Store with a setting of 10 to 20 ft-lb is best.

I sure have been doing it wrong. I've never checked mine in 10000 miles.

Great comments! Looking like torque in the 90-95 ft lb range is where I'm going. Thanks for all your input.

This says between 90 lb/ft to 120 lb/ft. I tighten my lugs on the aluminum wheels to 110 lb/ft.

BTW, they state ft/lbs which is technically incorrect. Horsepower is measured in ft/lbs, torque is measured in lb/ft.
