Wheel Torque

I had to replace the wheel on my 36CKTS. Does any owner of a 36CKTS know what I should torc the wheel too?

If they are 1/2" studs they are 90-110 ft/lbs if I remember correctly. My trailer has that size stud and has a sticker that says 100.

Note the difference in steel vs alloy wheels. 1/2" lug is likely. Regardless retorque every 50 miles until the nuts stop turning. What you did, or were supposed to do, when the trailer was new as these loosen in use until all bolt stretch is complete.

I probably need to revisit this. According to Chucks chart I should be torquing at 120-140. I think I've used 100 lbs because when I originally researched it I assumed my wheel studs were 1/2". I replaced all the lug nuts this summer and discovered mine are 9/16". I check them periodically and haven't had any issues but it looks like I need to be torquing at 130.

I just had the same issue on the same model of trailer. The tire company that replaced my wheels advised me the torque was 160 with 80 psi air pressure.

When I had my tires replaced last week on my Rockwood 5er the tire tech insisted they should be torqued to 120 ft-lbs. If they were supposed to be torqued to 100 ft-lbs, are the studs already stretched or can I loosen them and re-torque them to 100 ft-lbs? The factory sticker says they torqued them to 100 ft-lbs.
