Why is that the case? My F150 is sold with both steel and alloy
wheels. According to the owner's manual, the torque spec is the same
with either. I can see where the torque specs might be different if
you change the style of lug nut (different wheel to nut contact
configuration or nut to wheel friction) but in most cases I would
think nothing would change unless you got radically different lug
Well that's just it, Ed. I DO have *special* lug nuts for my alloy
wheels. They bear little resemblance to those for steel wheels. Mine
have an enormous bearing surface (cone) for my wheels...they're twice
the size of a steel wheel lug nut.
oh crap. here we go. Yes OEM.
Regular steel wheel lugs/nuts SMALL.
Alloy wheel lugs/nuts BIG.
