Torque

How much torque do you put on your trailer wheel nuts and also on your truck wheels? How often should they be checked?

If you have 1/2 inch studs than 80 lbs of torque is fine if you have larger studs than 120lbs
torgue them in a three stag method IE 20 to 25 Lbs 50 to 55 lbs and than 80 lbs. check the three times during the first 1000 miles. Remember that it was towed from the factory, and hopefully that driver check them on the way down
