If you look in the owners manual it will usually state what the wheels should be torqued to. I work in a tire shop for semis. The reason that most shops suggest getting wheels retorqued is that the hub may of had some dirt or rust on the hub and even though the tire will torque down it may not be even. After some time the rust may fall of causing the wheel to seat and then the lug nuts are loose. I have seen it happen.

I know i'm late to the party....but I can help but laugh my butt off hearing ya'll talk about les schwaab!! Some do exactly what Brian said, hit the lugs with the impact til they don't move, wait a minute, hit it again. After them destroying my chevy's brand new GM replacement bumper by bottoming out on their entrance and denying any wrong doing, that was my last visit there without my friends directly working on my vehicle. Got many friends that work there at different locations and such. Plus....I go in with $20 in my pocket, I drive out with $20 in my pocket. lol.


That sucks Brendon. S happens. Get her all fixed up yet? (yes, I stopped reading heavily after page 3. lol)

I looked on AllData today for my 08 F150 and the 6 lug and 7 lug is suppose to be torqued to 150 ft lbs like you said. I have no idea why the dealership would tell me 118....
Pansies...
