Interesting. The chart on pg 4-2 of my manual for my 2017 Classic states the max torque is 110 ft lbs. for aluminum wheels, and 100 for steel. I thought I previously read 80-90 lbs on this forum ... based on what I read, when I checked my lugs on my first trip out, I set for 85 and they were already there ... now maybe I should set to 105... looking for other smart folks to chime in.

Please clarify is this a trailer or MOHO question and more details beyond a wheel brand. It is in the MOHO section.

I guess I should have added that it is a Freightliner chassis but I though I am in the right forum for this type of rig.
Thanks Dave that was what I was looking for as mine did not came with any manuals.

Our 2017 was just at JC for some minor touch ups. I asked our Tech, yes at JC, they become your's, and he said emphatically 110# on all AS with Aluminum wheels. So, did the tour guide when asked by someone and then I asked the person checking the wheels in production and they said their wrenches are set to 110#.

Don't forget to recheck to see if any loosened after driving it awhile.

Sorry folks. This title caught my attention and I asked the question for a clarification on what was being worked on, MOHO or AS trailer. Looks like its a MOHO, Skydeck?

Wow, what a rig.

I looked at the Alcoa chart, lots of information, do's and don'ts great stuff.

The torque RANGE depending on nut thread size is 300 to 500 lb-ft.

Specs for an AS trailer being correct for your Skydeck, incorrect info.
