torque and nut size

our sport 22Fb did not come with any wheel removal tools

my old 15" Goodyear tires have 6 x 13/16" nuts and need 110 ft-lb of torque

our new replacement Michelin 16" tires need 120 ft-lb of torque

some trailers with smaller wheels may only have a 3/4" nut

here is a video on how to tighten them

It is your rims that have a torque spec, not your tires 😉

Surprised that the video shows tightening the five nuts sequentially, and not in a star pattern. Also, I always do six checks on a five lug wheel; it comes from training many years ago to ensure you will be less likely to miss one. There has been a lot of discussion on torque wrenches recently, but note that using a click type torque wrench as shown and not loosening the lug nut first simply checks for a minimum torque, and not for the correct torque.

Exactly...you can only torque a loose nut...COLD.
You NEVER torque a hot fastener.
