Can anyone tell me the correct wheel nut torque for Cragar S/S wheels on a 69 Camaro ? Cant find anything on the Cragar web site. Have been using around 60ft/lb

I am thinking 60 or 65 ft lbs each.

Re: wheel nut torque

I remember seeing somewhere it's 65 ft lb for 7/16" studs.

Re: wheel nut torque

The following information from
Recommended Lug Nut Foot/Ibs. Torque Specs.
Always refer to the Owner s Manual for proper factory specifications
that take precedence over the listed recommendations.
7/16 =75, 1/2 =90, 14mm/x1.5=95, 14x2.0=140, 9/16 =115, 5/8 =145
