How Tight Is Tight?

When mounting your “A” wheels do you use a torque wrench?  You should.

When mounting your wheels, you will want to be sure they stayed on.  After hearing horror stories about people loosing wheels, people are concerned that this won’t happen to them.  You want to make sure that you don’t tighten the lugs so tight that they cut through the wheels like a drill bit.

Tightening too tight will damage the wheels so only tighten to 64-lb. torque.  They will stay on.
