The lug nuts on our CF30SK were torqued to 100 lb-ft by the dealer. I've checked them several times to see if they loosen. I found two lugs less that 100 lb-ft and retorqued them. Since that time the lugs remained tight.



This is the kind of question that should have a special location on this forum, that gets answered by the people at Crossroads. I sent a PM to the Crossroads forum moderator regarding this.Edited by: Hamops

let's see if this will copy



Wheel nut torque requirements vary depending on the size and

manufacturer of the wheel. Always use the wheel manufacturer’s

recommendation but do not exceed 120 ft/lbs on 1/2" studs. Unless

otherwise specified by the wheel manufacturer, use a final torque of 85-

95 ft/lbs. Never exceed wheel manufacturer’s recommendations.









From the lippert manual.

Tighten then until they squeak, then give them another 1/2 turn.

I really don't know !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



However - a new question, The 8 bolt pattern on my Seville - What wheel do I buy for a spare? Ford, Chevy, or What for pattern and what rim width - steel wheel spare.

Got 1 spare with trailer - want another - just my way of doing things.

Called my dealer late this afternoon and asked the shop foreman that question.
He told me they torque to 90# on the lug nuts and 65# on the u bolts.
Seems like different shops have different ideas.
Thanks for responses.
