Nuts To Ya! Round II

Decided it was HIGH time to invest in some real lug nuts. They're are on their way via plain, brown, wrapped truck. The major question here is...What is the correct torque spec? I have seen 135 (early owner's manual) to 95 (off the shelf repair manual). Don't want or need to over torque in fear of tweaking the rotors.

135 is correct by a real manual. Haynes and Chilton's probably don't know where the lug nuts are.

135 is the correct torque

Using just a lug wrench is fine for the road side repair always sug using a torque wrench ASAP over torquing can break studs/warp rotors under torquing can well uh you know (did it myself this year) ruin a good day

Hey, Chiltons may be lug nuts, but they are pretty good with torque specs. I agree with the Haynes books. They have a lot of nothing.

I purchased a Haynes manual for Dodge Full Size Pick-ups '02 thru '08. My truck is a '07, and after reading thru the manual I discovered it should of had '02 thru '05. I doesn't cover the '07 or '08 models. I have learned my lesson, I should have purchased a factory service manual.

2005 and later: 1500 95 FT. LBS., 2500 145 FT. LBS., & 3500 155 FT. LBS. I run them down with a 4 way lug wrench, then use a torque wrench to finish. I like to use a torque wrench to prevent warping the disc brake rotors.
