Regardless of what tension you do them up to, in my mind the major importance is that they are all equal. You cannot do them up equally without a torque wrench, and that means it should be part of your kit. Do it in the correct star pattern, and then go around and around until they are all at the desired tension. This is a good habit to get into, particularly after your car’s wheels have been removed and refitted. Grit can get trapped between wheel nuts and the facings where they ‘seat’ on wheels, potentially creating false torque readings that aren’t indicative of actual clamping force. If you are using a torque wrench, the torque put on the threads (i.e. the torque applied to the nut) is whatever the torque wrench says it is.

It just matters how heavy you are. As long as you don't go on any crash diets, your wheels shouldn't come off.

This can cause stripped threads on wheel nuts and wheel studs plus stretching of the studs, which makes them weaker and prone to fracturing and eventual failure. This stretching can also cause the wheel nuts to work loose.

Not really. While it’s true that they’ll work as a regular wrench in a pinch, they’re not really designed for anything other than wheels and it won’t be a particularly good time to use. For normal wrenching, get a proper torque wrench. Are they different to other wrenches? What changes is the relationship between the torque put on the threads and the axial tension put on the bolt, so greased threads are under more tension for a given torque.Vehicle manufacturers design these tools to provide adequate leverage - and therefore the torque required - to tighten wheel nuts to the recommended settings. So, if you can loosen and tighten your car’s wheel nuts with the wheel brace, you can be reasonably confident that the wheel nuts have been tightened to, or close to, the correct torque. It also means you’ll be able to loosen them if you have to change wheels in our roadside scenario. Torque wrenches allow you to measure and limit the amount of force applied to a fixing. Every nut and bolt in your car will have a torque value. It’s particularly important that you have a torque wrench to hand if you’re working on the engine, gearbox or any crucial components in the drivetrain or suspension system. If you need a greater torque range, this Teng wrench covers 25-250 ft. lbs… It’s the same quality wrench. How To Use The Teng Torque Wrench? On that note, I’d expect having them all done to equal amounts of compression would be very helpful, or you’d end up with some nuts being far more likely to come loose first, and the overall pressure on the wheel being uneven.

Interesting about the structural bolt torques; as a mechanical fitter I’ve had some experience with structural stuff, but not a huge amount. I can completely understand why there are so many variables, and why it would be hard to get the same each time.I’ve had my Teng wrench for a few years now. It gets calibrated every year, and I’ve never had a problem. It’s not an ornament. It’s used heavily but still performs and looks good. I’m happy to recommend it. It’s a good kit. I clean mine every use and store it on a shelf where I can grab it real fast. Come winter. I’ll spray it with WD40 and keep it in its hard case to keep moisture off it. You may want to store yours in the trunk. If so, store it securely. A document from AOR Campers online suggests its literally somewhere between those two figures, which seems ludicrous to me. I hate vague information, and you can’t get more vague than that; somewhere between 135 and 200nM! You need to know what the wheel manufacturer recommends as its torque setting for wheel nuts Steel vs alloy wheels The 1/4 and some 3/8 inch drive wrenches will be measured in inch lbs., not ft. lbs… They’re designed for lighter fasteners requiring less torque. (12-inch lbs. is equal to 1-foot lb.) The 1/4 inch drive torque wrench is used for very light fasteners, like interior trim, control module covers, etc. After my folks very nearly had a caravan wheel come off their van (it was literally holding on by a few loose nuts) I started looking very carefully into Caravan Wheel Nut Torque, and trying to make sense of once again, what seemed like a total shambles of information. Two broken studs and 4 loose nuts; what torque setting do you use? Start with the OEM recommendations

The only solution then is to remove the dress-cap with a chisel to access the wheel nut, which not only destroys the dress-cap but also increases the risk of alloy wheel damage while doing so. How to avoid over-tightening The torque wrench is indispensable both for changing the wheel and for retightening the nuts. You can only tighten the wheel bolts correctly if you use one. The key to tightening tyres is the torque value (also called tightening torque). This is stipulated for each car or rim and tells you how much force should be used when tightening the wheel bolts. This value must be maintained so that the bolts can withstand the stresses they are subjected to when driving and hold the wheel securely in place. If the screws are not tight enough, they can come loose whilst driving. If the wheel bolts are too tight, the threads might get stripped or damaged. And this is where the torque wrench comes in. I did more research, and found that the torque specifications often come from the wheel manufacturer. Many alloy wheels on big, off road caravans are recommended to have their wheel nuts torqued to 135nM. So, do you do it to 135, or somewhere between that and 200, or the full 200nM? The point is the wheel studs or bolts are being used as sheer bolts, if, assuming as some do put grease between the wheel and the hub, the hub point is meant to be a friction coupling (had to look this up to confirm)

Check your wheel nuts with a torque wrench

Why? Because if you fail to adequately torque a bolt, it could work its way loose. Or, if you tighten it too much, you could cause costly damage. About torque wrenches from Halfords Wheel nut wrenches have a particular use and are designed for roadside maintenance. That’s why they’re quite small and lightweight, perfect for keeping in the car. While they’re not the strongest wrench, they’re perfect for breakdowns Is it the same thing as a tyre iron? Each new car that rolls off an assembly line has its wheel nuts ‘torqued’ to the correct Nm settings. However, if these factory settings are not maintained during ownership, wheel nuts can become either too loose or too tight. So if I understand you correctly, friction between the hub and wheel surface prevents excessive sheer loading of the studs, and a suitably high tension on the studs keeps that friction adequate.
