My 2016 Coleman TT says torque for the wheels is

Wheel torque step 1 20-25 1
2 50-60 4 3
3 90-120 (max)


This is for installing a wheel, I just check torque to 120 lbs when checking.

More to think about torquing wheel lug nuts. Over torquing will stretch the lugs and that can lead to stud failure. Shops using air wrenches usually over-torque unless they use torque-limit adapters. Few do. If the shop does, almost always the adapter will be colored, but that doesn't mean the technician is using the correct torque adapter.

If your lug nuts have tapered bottoms (1/2" & 9/16") you need to check the torque about 50 miles. If the lug nuts needed some torque, then check again after another 50 miles. Repeat until no torque is needed.

What is happening is that the tapered nuts are settling into the tapered seats in the wheels. Over-torquing will not compensate for this.

If your have 5/8" studs, then you really only need to torque the first time as 5/8" nuts have flat faces and there is no settling.

But a check on the torque on 5/8" nuts is just good sense.
