How much tension on a wheel strap??
When applying tension to the wheel straps on a tow dolly is there a standard as to how much is enough?
My tendency has been to make sure the rear hook end is as tight and stretched as possible- with absolutely no slack or play. I use up all the ratchet strength available.
I hope I am not damaging the tire on the car though as this puts a lot of pressure on the forward part of the the wheel as it pulls the car forward into the strap and wheel pan.
I have never seen any documentation as to what is the appropriate or necessary amount of tension to apply and was wondering if anyone else has that info.
