Lug nut and wheel question?

I have the 2016 8528 IKWS. It is in storage right now but need to pickup a torque wrench. Is wheel steel or aluminum? Lug nut size 1/2" or 13/16"? Thanks.

No idea of the wheels, but would guess the studs are 1/2" with a 13/16" nut. Torque should be between 90lb/ft & 120lb/ft. I torque mine to 110lb/ft. On steel wheels, usually one torqueing is sufficient, on alum wheels it usually take 3 or 4 @ 25-50 mile intervals before they finally seat.

Also may want to put a little anti-sieze on threads, especially if the nuts are closed on one end. Will keep them from rusting to the studs.

It should be an extremely small amount ON THE THREADS ONLY and definitely DO NOT GET IT ON THE TAPERED PORTION OF THE NUT OR THE WHEEL.
