My owners man. said 44 ft lbs. of torque when replacing the wheels. I set the wrench at 45 and it sure didn't seem like much to me. Is this about where you boys torque yours as well? Now I understand that they aren't near as big as a car or truck but that just didn't seem like much torque. Do ya'll put any dressing on the studs at all? LIke Never Seize? Thanks for your time.

I torque the snot out of mine with a regular ratchet. With the ITP lugnuts I still find one looser than the others when I go to pull the wheels off. I don't ever use anything n the threads of the lugs.

Most auto lugs should be 90 - 100 lbs. My Rhino service manual says 40 ft lbs for the lugs. Seems light, but too much and you may wrap the rotors. Most specs are based on dry threads.

I don't crank the lugs as tight as I can can them. Just good and tight.

Stock rzr steel wheels say 12ft lbs. Rzr stock aluminium wheels say 90ft lbs. I have itp aluminum wheels and originally torqued them at 60. I about lost a wheel, and another also got loose on me. So now, as bad as i hate doing it, I torque them all at 90 and every time I'm waiting on breaking a stud but I've had them on and off several times and no wheels have gotten loose on me nor have I broken a stud. But man, its like scraping fingernails down a chalkboard to me.

I keep Never Seize (actually loctite C5-A copper anti seize ) on my studs. I have Douglas Rattlesnake wheels with ITP 14mm lug nuts. I snug them up tight, and then give them 1/4 more turn with the ratchet. I've had them on/off many times with no problems. Never a loose lug nut.

might want to back off a little, the stock polaris lugnuts for the aluminum wheels require 90 because they are so long, a reg nut is good at 50, most times i just use my electric impact which spins them on to about 60 or so. Never had a loose one yet. I also use anti-seize on the studs
