Hi, Airstream has had many different torque settings for each model and each wheel, not just steel versus aluminum. The nuts should take a 3/4"/19mm socket. I use a 19mm, six point, deep, impact, thin wall socket for my trailer. As for the torque; Mine is supposed to be, as per Airstream, 110 to 120 lbs. [aluminum wheels] I torque mine at 120 lbs. [note my steel wheel spare is to be torqued at 90 lbs] The only true answer will be in your owner's manual or call Airstream.
