    Lug Nut Torque

    When I took the stock wheels off of my VT I noticed the lug nuts felt considerably tighter than the torque spec in the owner's manual. The max torque Hyundai recommends is 79 ft/lbs. I set my torque wrench to 79 when I put my snow tires/wheels on and it did not feel even close to the tightness the factory used. I'm guessing they were somewhere around 100.

    Honestly, 79 felt too loose. I torqued them to 85 just to be safe. Anyone have thoughts on this?

    Thanks!

    Call your dealership and ask for the service dept. and ask them what is the manufacture torque spec on the lugnuts. I do not know off hand. If you apply too much torque to the lug nuts you will go pass the threads yield point which will decrease the clamping force which is as bad as not torquing the lug nuts to the correct spec.

    ALSO make sure the back of the rim is clean from loose debris and dry as well as the break hub and the lug nuts. We use a wire brush on the mating surfaces and spray the brake hubs with a brake cleaner. if the lug nuts have anything on them, we clean them with a rag and make sure its all metal to metal. A liquid can not be torqued and can cause a wheel off. If you just torque the lug nuts to its manufacturer specific torque spec you will not have any trouble with your lugs and studs or a wheel off.

    Ive always used 90-100lbs on vehicles and never had an issue.

    Id rather have to replace a bolt than ever remotely gamble with the possibility of a wheel wiggliing loose over time.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I've always used 85 ft/lbs on my cars with alloy wheels so I was a little alarmed to have the nuts so tight from the factory. But I guess I can see why they might build in a margin of error as I doubt anyone is giving them a second tightening after a week or so like you're supposed to. 85 it is.

    I've just always torqued mine down by feel. I would normally then just double check the lug nuts after a few hundred miles of driving just to make sure.
