Torque Specifications


  • Please use the following charts to help you determine the proper torque for your equipment. Please note that over-torquing can cause the bolt to be prone to cracking, shearing, loosening, or breaking off, which can result in damage to the wheel and other related components

    To determine the proper torque for your wheel, use the chart on our FAQ page! Click the link and scroll to the torque question.

    When tightening your lug nuts, please keep in mind to follow the proper sequence to insure proper installation. After installation, remember to check the torque after the first 10 miles, 25 miles, and again at 50 miles of driving. Check periodically thereafter.

    U-Bolts

    When determining what torque your U-bolt will need, first determine the diameter (measurement A). When you determine the diameter, please use the chart below for the appropriate torque.

    Spindle Nut

    When tightening your spindle nut, it is best to tighten the nut until snug, where it has no type of play on it and then back off of it slightly (about an 1/8th of a turn). If your axle has castle nuts and cotter pins or a tang nut on the spindle, tighten them by hand until it stops, then back it off so the cotter pin or washer tang fits into the indentation of the castle nut.
