Wheel lug Tq

Putting a set of snow tires on, pg 540 in the Owners manual calls for 130 ft-lbs, is that correct? Seems a little high but maybe that is what they want.

Re: Wheel lug Tq

Put the wheels on( 5 spoke factory 20" from OE Wheels LLC) with Nokians.


I torqued them per the manual 130 ft-lb/176nm 22mm lug M14x1.50


also recommends checking them after 25 miles.




Should be a beast in the snow!

Re: Wheel lug Tq

I guess I'll be snugging mine up to 130#

Not sure why I trusted Fountain Tire......the DF tire was at 43 psi and the PF was at 31 psi... with brand new tires!.....and I wondered why it was pulling left. The dash only said 2 psi difference. I filled the tires before the road trip......dash didn't change. Took it back in...they 'reset' the sensors....now reading right.

Re: Wheel lug Tq

go to jeep.com and you can download the manuals.

Tires and wheels are getting heavy, also a pita jacking these, have to use a block on my floor jack to get enough travel to get the wheel off and slide a jack stand under.
