I have a 2002 Club Cab w/ the tire handleing package, can anybody tell me the torque specs so I don't warp anything???

I'm guessing something like 125lbs but like I said I don't want to warp the rotors, and I defenetly want to make sure their tight.

The shop manual doesn't say exactly, just says something like 95-110 or somthing, so I went with 100 also.

If you torque to the upper limits you (assuming you are male) or your wife may have more difficulty removing the lug nuts if you get a flat and have to change the tire with the standard under seat equipment. I keep to lower part of range, usually 90 ftlbs for the Dak I think. I look it up for each vehicle when I am rotating tires.

Thanks guys, I'm gonna have to re-torque them, I needed to put the wheels on the truck within 1/2 an hour of my post, and just to be safe, not wanting the wheels to fall off I torqued them to 125lbs.

125 is way too tight !!! You should torque the wheels to spec and then retorque the wheels after a couple of days (or about 60 miles/100 km...I live in Canada) . You WILL warp your rotors for sure .

I work at a racing school. We use cars that are purchased from Nascar Bush and Winston Cup teams. We torque the wheels at 70 ft. lbs.. This is with 5/8-18 studs, but, the wheels are retorqued every morning and whenever a tire is changed. For my personal '98 Dak, I torque the wheels at 100 ft. lbs., which is right in the middle of the range recommended in the owners manual.

A stock Dakota is great place to start
