Default Proper OEM lug nut torque specs ?

Also, it as always important to use a torque wrench for putting wheels on car?

or can i just "feel" for the proper torque?

i've heard it's bad to torque way above specs....may warp rotors. of course, below specs can be bad for obvious reasons.

i've always wondered about this, but I would've thought that the warping of rotors comes from using different torque amount on all 4/5 lugs as opposed to using a number different 80ftlb.. in other words if you consistently use X ftlb on all lugs you'll be OK.. if that's the case, are torque specs given to save your threads?

You should always use a torque wrench.

Here is a nice one for only thirty bucks. It's money well spent.

i like to use a torque wrench.. but when one is not around, just make sure they're on there pretty snug.. and of course in a star pattern.

you sir, are a retard. many things need an appropriate bolt stretch that should be measured... ie, rod caps, main caps, tranny components... others can be rednecke'd with no issues.

You, sir, are very quick to throw nasty insults around without any provocation. Perhaps you are having a bad day. (Cubs fan, perhaps?)

You also ignore the fact that the question was asked about lug nuts and it would be reasonable for anyone to assume that my response should be taken within this context. However, since you are clearly more interested in attacks than in having a reasonable discussion, I will rephrase my response:

You should always use a torque wrench when tightening wheel lug nuts.

But then sometimes they don't end up with the screw-heads vertically aligned. Click the image to open in full size.

Use the torque wrench, and avoid "breaking off" a bolt/stud. Replacing a broken bolt isn't as easy to replace on Acuras, as they are to replace on Fords, Dodges, and GM cars.

Of course you can just guess, but it is definitely a best practice to use a torque wrench whenever possible. Guessing works fine and dandy until you mess something up.

If you over torque the lugs you can damage the threads and risk the lugs falling off or having to cut a stud because you can't get the lug off. that is why you should use a torque wrench to tighten lugs but as long as you don't go he-man strength and just get them tight with a 4way or however you personally do it you should be good
