Torque for Trailer Wheels

I have a 2012 Palomino Sabre 32RCTS and would like to know what the torque rating is for the trailer wheels.
Thanks

You should have received a trailer axle book that will give you the correct nut torque. It all depends on what axles and rims you have on your trailer.

Here is what the manual says.

14” 1/2” 20-25 50-60 90-120
15” 1/2” 20-25 50-60 90-120
16” 1/2” 20-25 50-60 90-120
16.5” x 6.75” 1/2” 20-25 50-60 90-120
16” 9/16” 20-25 60-70 120-130
16.5” x 6.75” 9/16” 20-25 60-70 120-130
17.5” w/long nut 5/8” 50-60 100-120 190-210
17.5”w/flange nut 5/8” 50-60 150-200 275-325
14.5” Demount 1/2” tighten sequentially to 85-95

All torques in FT LBS.

If you don't have the manual there is one in the files section, or you can PM me.

Thanks for the quick respones. I should have been more specific. I bought this unit slighty used and did not get a manual. It has the 16" E-rated,
8 lug Sumec aluminum wheels w/6000 lb. axles.

Stud size is the determining factor. With alum wheels, it will take at least 3 times with 50-100 miles between torqueing to get the nuts really seated.

My dealer was kind enough to put a sticker above the axles with the torque value he used, the date, and his name......

It was 120....fwiw....
