Lug Nuts Empty
PostSubject: Lug Nuts   Lug Nuts EmptyWed Jun 21, 2017 6:49 pm

After loosing one of my custom Eagle Wheel lug nuts on the Wind Rock trip on my pick up truck, RZRJOE tightened up the loose ones at 100 ft lbs. I found some used ones at Big O today that fit. He looked up my truck and the stock lug nuts should be torqued at 140 ft. lbs. When I went to torque the ones Joe had already done, I found some more worked loose. This has never been an issue.

QUESTION - It was killing me to torque them at 140 with just the torque wrench, so I used a cheater. Does anyone know if it makes any difference when using a cheater on actual torque? It sure helped my back that has 3 blown discs.

If by cheater you mean a pipe over the torque wrench to make the handle longer, no same torque is applied it's just easier because of the extra leverage.

BTW - the new RZRs w/12mm studs call for 120lb/ft of torque on the lug nuts also. 180 on the axle nuts thatsright

Valuable info. I lost a hub cap on my XP on the Windrock ride so it seems like a good time to check all the lugs as well.

Chad, are you getting a deal on 10, if so, where?  1 is nearly $20.00 from what I see.  I lost one too, but heard it come off so I put it back on.  Then I smashed it later and it wedged under the nuts cotter pin.
