Just did a bunch of rotor replacement and was wondering if the torque specs for the styled steel wheels would be 100 ft lbs. Used the torque wrench and boy that seemed a lot... Then again maybe my vibration I asked recently was do to a loose wheel...lol Ooooops

Thanks Dan. I have mine at 100 ft lbs right now and wonder if I ever had a flat on the road if that little wrench could undo the nuts . I believe Dennis mentioned 100ft lbs So shooting in the middle would work

80-90lbs would certainly be an acceptable range.

The 66' Mustang shop manual lists steel wheel torque specs as between 70-115lbs. I was taught to use 100lb many years ago and so that is what comes to mind when I'm cranking on the wrench. I've never had an issue with good sound parts.
