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.
