Stainless lugs? They are not stainless, they just have a SS cladding on them. I use them on my wheels unless the wheel is chrome.
    Not concerned about torque yet....it’s Feb. Just the rims . They will go on in May.

    If I lived in WI, they would not go on until August!!
    BTW, 1/2 bolts need 90-100 ft/lb
    I use 90 and it always seems on the light side, but they have never come off!

    Ever seen those pointer thingies that they use on big truck lug nuts? Wonder if they make them for smaller lug nuts? That way you could easily see a nut starting to back off.

    I have an LT and did wheel upgrades and kept stock 145R12 ST tires. Everything is fine for lug nuts staying on just torque to recommended value. Keep cold air pressure up to maximum on trailer tires and it tows great.
