Re: lug nut thread size? (drktorn)
Is it necessary to retorque lug nuts after first 50stock miles or so? I ask because my wheel flew off today and I had done the front brakes 10 days ago and I know I torqued them to 82lbs,I guess it's also possible that I didn't have the wheel lugs seated properly before I let the jack down and did final torque. I'd have expected the studs and/or theholes in the rim to be mangled but they're not. Only 1had stud is bent. It was making a heck of a racket before the wheel flew off but I thought it was the plastic cover under the front end hanging down and rubbing on drive axel. Boy was I wrong.
