Default Axle nut loose?

I recently had my axles done by a buddy about 5 months ago.. Last weekend I swapped rims with someone and after swapping..I noticed my left wheel making a clunk sound as if they lug nuts were loose. I jacked up the car and made sure they were on good and it did the same thing as if the wheel wanted to come off. I then tried a different rim/tire and the same thing..The axle tightening was done by hand..it feels tight by hand now but could it be loose and need ot be tightened by something stronger?.the wheel seems to be on there good ..any replies would be greatly apreciated..thanks

you need to torque everything down. Usual torque on wheels is 80 lbs.-ft. and the axles need to be torqued to 134 lbs.-ft. will need a torque wrench to do so.
