Wheel Nuts Torque Wrench Setting

Recommended Posts

Anyone know the correct torque wrench settings for wheel nuts on alloy wheels? Mondeo mk4 2010.

The handbook says 140nm but my mechanic says that's far too high and says it should be 90-100nm

Don't want to either damage the threads or have wheels fall off!

Looking around the 'net most seem to go for around 100

Heres the settings

  • M12 - except alloy wheel security nuts = 140 Nm
  • M12 - alloy wheel security nuts:
  • With conical washer = 110 Nm
  • Without conical washer = 140 Nm
  • M14 - including security nuts = 170 Nm
  • With conical washer = 110 Nm

Cheers

Yeah I got 140nm in my handbook too but that seems ever so high!??

I asked my mechanic and he said 90-100 but no more.... He's an independent ford specialist ex-ford master technician!

Still very confused!
