No setting to set. Look at linkJust remember to bring the setting back to 0 when you finish using the tool. I know enough week-end warriors who leave it at their last tension forever, which slowly screws up the torque wrench.
I wouldn't use an impact to reach the specified torque either. Use the impact to quickly put the wheels on, then torque them with a hand torque wrench.Thats a new one for me, which is saying alot considering the selection of tools in my garage. Lugs are the few things I will not use an impact wrench on (and tell dealers the same), especially on wheel lug locks
Many years ago.....I think I was 21. I was driving in my work truck (14 foot box truck with dual axels) And the drivers side tires fell off. I don't know how I kept my composure, but I did. I came out ok, but unfortunately a catering halls front foyer didn't make out so well when the tire went through a large pane of glass. Luckily there was nobody standing in the foyer at that time. Obviously the lug nuts were not properly installed at the maintenance shop we go to, as they were just put on only a few days before. Long story short.......lugs nuts are an easily over looked item on the safety check list.Exactly, since my garage is fairly equiped, a number of friends and neighbours come by for the annual tire swap, I can't tell you how many times I needed to add a 4foot breaker bar to my lug wrench to remove lugs (wheels installed by dealer). I also had the experience of losing a wheel because the lugs not being torqued on properly, the one and only time I didn't double check a dealer rotation.
Good thing you were OK.....sorry for going off topic, but technically I ended this topic several posts back, just trying to not send a thread to a quick death.Since we are trading stories (getting off topic), I lost mine on a highway (front right), heard the first lug hit the side of the truck, thought it was road debris, when I heard the second, told my friend I was going to get off to check things out. 2 seconds later, I was watching my wheel sail 50' up like a Frisbee. It flew straight up and across 3 lanes of oncoming traffic, ended up in a water canal on the other side. Props to the traffic control crew, they actually fished it out and returned it to me. The good thing, minimal damage to the truck and the dealer covered all expenses.
Page 379 of the 2010 owners manual states 100 ft/lbs.Is 100 ft/lb still relevant?
I see the op was asking about a 2007 RT but I have a 2010 Mainstreet and was going to take the wheels off today to clean the inside of the rims. Just want to make sure I torque the lugs correctly when I put them back on.
8. Finish tightening the nuts. Push down on the wrench
while tightening the wheel nuts. Alternate nuts until each
nut has been tightened twice. The correct wheel nut
torque is 100 ft lbs (135 N·m). If you doubt that you have
tightened the nuts correctly, have them checked with a
torque wrench by your authorized dealer or service station.
