    Real Wheel Torque Value

    The service manual says to torque the lug nets to 80ft pounds. To me that seems a bit much.


    So my question is; do you torque your lug nuts? If so, to what value?

    I take mine to the recommended value, 80ft/lbs. My 2015 Silverado with the aluminum wheels shows 140 fl/lbs.

    Yes, I torque them. To 80 ft lbs. I cary a long 1/2" breaker bar and lug socket in the bottom of the left saddlebag in case it needs to come off on travel. Never had to yet, however.
