Lug nut torque

2000 MAGNA, Anyone know lug nut torque settings, Front Aluminum rims, 12R 22.5 Tires, Wheel 9x22.5. Just can’t find the information. Anyone ever use a 1:58 Torque Multiplier and what the setting would be on a standard torque wrench. Thanks

Just torque the lug nuts as tight as you can, then drive to a truck stop garage and let them set the proper torque.
If you are a DIYS person, than call a truck garage and the torque should be the same as a semi truck with same wheels.

I don't know what the torque on those wheels would be but it the 1:58 is correct and the suggested torque is 580 lbs the correct setting on your torque wrench would be 10 ft. lbs. (580/58=10). You might want to read the Q&A on this page before you use the tool I think you have. It says it can't be used to tighten nuts only loosen them. https://www.northerntool.com/shop/to...fff12855330669

Northern Tool is a fairly reliable outfit. Good luck.

I have one of those things. Very nice for getting the lug nuts off. The one I have didn’t have any provision to adapt a torque wrench so I just hand tightened the lugs with it.

I thought about that for about 5 minutes and then drove over to NAPA and bought a 3/4” drive torque wrench. And did it right. 450-500 lb-ft

Pull one of the lug nut covers off and the torque rating should be stamped on each nut. Here is a picture of mine.

BTW, 450 ft-lbs is not for the faint of heart. And the tire is HEAVY. Here are a few tools I have used to remove tires.

I have a torque wrench and to give you an idea the length is 4ft and i weight about 180 and me standing on the end to get a click is just about all my weight. Like maybe 20lbs. If you have a bar at 48inch our make an extension its not that hard to know where you should be. I go to about 470 but and i think all my weight would do 500.

For my coach, torque is 450-500 foot pounds.

A torque wrench loses accuracy fast when used with a torque multiplier, which multiplies the error, not just the torque. Beyond 4:1, I would not trust such a combination. I suggest a big breaker bar and torque adapter instead.

Here's an Amazon link to an adapter like the one I have: https://www.amazon.com/Neiko-20743A-...s%2C152&sr=8-2
