Oops..hit send before I was done. We also located a steel wheel of the right size and a matching Michelin at the local
Discount Tire which we will use to go home..then keep as the spare once we get a new Sendel wheel.
Before installing the new Sendels I read the various discussions on the forum about torque, and concluded then as now that there are differences of opinion. My husband told them to install at 125 because that was what the Sendel wheels recommended.

The Airstream factory recommends the 125 foot pounds number on the SenDel wheels.

Hi, I think a lot of people miss this, and I did too for the longest time. My owner's manual states to torque my lug nuts to 110 to 120 lbs. [aluminum wheels] I always torque at the maximum. So I torque my lug nuts to 120 lbs. I have never yet used my spare, but my owner's manual states the steel wheel should only be torqued to 90 lbs.
