How tight should I get?

2013 Newmar on F53 Ford 20,500 pound chassis running 19.5 inch steel wheels on Goodyear rubber. It has 10 lug nuts per wheel. Just getting ready to install centramax wheel ballancers on all 4 corners of the rig. What is the torque specs on these? Thinking it is about a 150 FPT on a F350 single wheel truck, but I have never had a F550 dually truck before.

And take notice whether they specify clean dry threads or lubricated threads because it makes a huge difference.

Thanks one and all for all the great info. It is probably in the ford manual in my case of manuals. I guess I was just too lazy to look!:hide

My manual states "Nut & bolt threads must be free of dirt and rust. on all two-piece flat wheel nuts, apply one drop of motor oil between the flat washer and the nut. Do NOT apply motor oil to the wheel nut threads or the wheel stud threads."

It goes on to say, "Retighten the lug nuts to the specified torque on new vehicle operation and after any wheel removal: single rear wheel at 500 miles dual rear wheel at 100 miles and at 500 miles."

Just noticed it didn't address anything about the front wheels

Hope this helps--
