Problem with mounting wheels...
I have a 2004 4.0 4x4 with 100k on the odometer. I love this truck, let me count the ways...But thats besides the point. I took my wheels off today to refinish them, used some duplicolor stain black wheel paint, turned out really good. The problem came when loosening the lug nuts. The lug nuts were on there so tight that, it took all my strength and body weight to loosen each one with a tire iron. I'm pretty strong for my size, and I ended up actually moving the truck almost two inches when it was in park (level surface)
I had just had my local Ford dealer rotate my tires two days ago and I thought wow this s*** is on there really good! Now when I remount them, I 'm using a torque wrench, (the needle kind) brand new craftsman out of the package. When I tighten it to the recommended 100 ft/lbs it seems like its not nearly as tight as it was when i took them off. So, did the guys at Ford torque the crap out of my wheels, or am I doing something wrong???
Thanks for the help
