You are watching: Dodge ram 2500 lug nut torque
For everyone that requirements to know, i spoke through a company tech today and was provided the lug seed torque for conical lug nut (130 ft/lbs) and flange lug seed (140 ft/lbs)
2.60, 5" rear coils, XD832 20x9 -12mm wheels, Yokohama Geolandar G003 37x12.50R20, Mopar "16 flares, Lomax tough Tri-fold tonneau, AMP steps
That seems too high for an aluminum wheel, over there is more than simply the stud and also nut to consider. Mine acquire torqued come 100 lb/ft, just like any type of other aluminum wheel ns have had actually over the last 30 years. Never lost one LOL

Definately, ns had comes to that the torque spec to be on the high side and also I did ask the tech around the forged aluminum rims top top the PW and also he stated that they were 130 ft/lbs conical, 140 ft/lbs flange. Below is the torque specs from the 2016 2500 manual, although the is not specific about aluminum rims :http://imgur.com/a/E96nu
If they have to be that tight, they should start furnishing a longer lug wrench to bust castle loose...

Actually that is funny you stated that. Most way over torque their lug nuts or use an impact gun (bad).I had actually a conversation v an automotive engineer a few years back and he to be describing how literally every little thing on vehicles is engineered these day to meet details demands. The example he lugged up to be the lug wrench. The told me most human being can exert around 100lbs of force without hurting or straining themselves, for this reason the length of the wrench to be engineered v that in mind, not space requirements. I.E. The tighter the nuts must be the longer the wrench is. I really assumed he was joking until I went out to my vehicles and started poking around. On my PW the lug torque is 130ftlb, and my wrench is a the shade under 15" long. On mine Hyundai the torque is 65ftlb and also the wrench is about 10" long. On my Jeep the torque to be 95ftlb and also the wrench was specifically 12" long. Ns am still not certain its 100% true, yet the length to torque ratio on the vehicles I have checked actually works to it is in pretty damn close.
