much depends on your wheel size (14-15-16) and type steel or aluminum...

I believe 90# to 120# is the range. Lower for smaller wheels higher for larger wheels.

Reply with your wheel size and type and I'm sure someone can tell you exactly.

If you are taking a tire off and putting one on and 'torqueing' it, recheck the tightness 25-50 miles down the road.

Having a tire shear the lugs and pass you going down the road gives one a very weird feeling....

Should be a sicker above the tire area or e-mail FR to get the specs

I just changed the lug nuts on my 14" steel rims yesterday and torqued to 90# if that helps.

Not hijack this thread, but I have a 15” tire on aluminum rims (6 lug). What do you think?

My Rockwood with 16" alloy wheels states 100# as the recommended torque.
