Reminder - check wheel lug nuts
 
Just a friendly reminder to check your wheel lug nuts occasionally. :cool:

Part of my distance towing check list. take about 5 minutes. Also check your air while you're at it.

Great thread! Hand torquing is the way to go.....especially on aluminum wheels. Torque wrenches don't need to be expensive.

Harbor Freight has them on sale now........ $15.99 marked down from $34.99

Surprisingly most aluminum wheels get over-torqued. Typically 85# is the correct setting for aluminum trailer wheels. Steel wheels usually a little more.

Also remember to re-torque 50-75 miles later. There is almost always one lug that needs tightening.
