I have lost lugnuts at 65 but never at 80 or higher. Max for the studs would be 120 - can't speak for the nuts - they are rolled threads not cut. So I would set em all at 65 drive it and see if any loosened - increase by 10 until you see no loosening.

The importance is EQUAL torque more than high torque - just gotta be high enough that they don't vibrate loose.

I'm looking for a set of 15" Cragar SS. I have a set of 14" on my car now, but I want to change to disc brakes. Did you buy them used; how much do they sell for?

they run 150 (7 inch) to 250 (10 inch) new. You should be able to find some decent used ones around 50-100 - wouldn't pay more - you are risking buying abused wheels.

I think for 7/16 X 20 studs you would be between 85-90 lbs

If you upgrade the studs to 1/2 x 20 I would go with 100 LBs

Make sure to purchase cragers lugs nuts and washers only not off brand they will not fit correctly.

well i paid $275.00 for the set,used they are in great shape and i just got an email from a howard clark at Cragar he said The torque on 7/16 studs should be 65 ft lbs. Recheck after 30 miles......... so we'll go with that thank for al the input on this also got some great advice from Trifive (admin) (buy cragar lugs) not some off brand........
