Default Lug Nut Torque?

Does anyone know what the torque setting is on the lug nuts on my 2000 EX Sedan?

Thanks

Joe

Use an impact gun. When it's tightened all the way give it 3 or 4 more "thunk thunk thunks" and you're set. Click the image to open in full size.

I can't say if that's for all Hondas', afterall, we only have Civic and CRV. But with less than 90lb of torque, it won't be too hard to take off the lug nuts. Or else, you will have a hard time changing the spare tires if the situation calls for it.

Hehehe, been working fine for me for many many years now. Never had a problem. And I can still take 'em off with my Honda lug wrench.

All honda lug nuts should be torqued to 80 ft lbs., except one, which I believe is the crv and it is like 84 ft. lbs.

You must have a weak impact gun Click the image to open in full size. , When I use my impact gun I allways turn it down half way which is around the 80 or so you need or get a torque stick Yellow if I remember right is the one you want. Click the image to open in full size.

Yea dont go over the recommended specs. My dad torqed my lugs on my 240 to 500 with the impact. I broke 2 impacts and still didnt get the lug off. Then i used a forged star, and i snapped the stud right out of the disc. So not good.
