Lug nut torque for aluminum wheels?
I bought some aluminum wheels from Airstream, same as are used on the 2011 Classic Limited trailers, to replace some old steel wheels on my '79. Also got the closed end lug nuts.
With the old steel wheels, lug nut torque was 90 - 95 ft. lbs. Any difference for the aluminum wheels?
I also noticed that the aluminum wheels don't leave much clearence around the lug nuts. You can get a deep socket on them but not a standard 4-way lug wrench.
Any special thin-wall lug wrenches available or just use a socket and long handled breaker bar? Is using an air impact wrench use okay?
