Wheel torque

Removed my 5er wheels to have pressure sensor installed yesterday. Anyone know the correct torque for the 16” 8 lug aluminum wheels?

Pretty sure it's 100 ft. lbs. for my Cardinal fifth wheel. I can't guarantee that would be the same for yours. (I keep my torque wrench set for it...and I honestly now can't remember if it's 100 or 110.)

Sorry early this morning. I forgot about sticker, it’s was dark when I took them off. I’ll look for the sticker today. Probably 100 but I’ll look. Thanks

Just an FYI.....many adjustable "clicker" type torque wrenches have instructions to reset them to 0 while not in use. To keep the internals from stretching out and losing accuracy. Your results and type may vary.

+1

rjshiflet, you may want to have the calibration on your torque wrench tested.

Hate to be a stickler, but having worked in the aerospace industry the requirements actually say to adjust the wrench to the "lowest" setting so a 30 to 150 ft. lb. wrench would be set to 30 when you are finished. It should also be exercised several times before using it to torque. I believe "several" is like 5 or 6 times, but I cannot remember.

My instructions for my cheap one said the same: set it to the lowest setting.

How do you “exercise” one?

Easy,follow the torque pattern sequence starting at 20 foot #,increase but 20# increments until you reach your final Torque setting for your hubs/wheels! That will "Exercise two things,You and the Torque Wrench"! Youroo!!

You operate it at the torque you need about 6 times. When I was working, we had torque analyzers bolted to our work benches. You could check accuracy and exercise the wrench. I exercise mine on one wheel bolt. Then loosen and re-torque that one bolt. You could also exercise it on a vice on a work bench if one is available.
