100 ft/lb....

Not trying to be a dick but you don't know how much to torque wheels? It should say on your manual or do what I did and google it. Took me about two seconds. I tighten with a lug wrench myself as tight as I can because I don't have an impact gun or a big enough torque wrench, and I've never had problems.

Like I said, not trying to be a dick. You can ask all the questions you want on here without repercussions (most of the time) but some questions are better off googled first. You could find an answer faster than you could finish typing your question. Believe me, I just turned 20, I don't know a lot either but I sure as hell learned a lot from this forum, it's just those questions that are pretty much common sense

When I was 17 I bought myself a '66 mustang. And I have a total of 3 mustangs at age 20... Sooooooo he could be working hard, or maybe he's doing good in school? If he was a rich kid, he would have an sn197

when I was 16, my parents bought me a hyundai accent. Hated the car, drove it like twice and always stalled the thing(didn't really have the motivation to learn stick). My dad understood why I didn't like it, and so we just said the 5sp was too hard to learn and sold it. Bought a 1995 auto V6 mustang, My friend has a same year hyundai accent(except with like 10 more hp than the one I had) and my V6 mustang smokes it on the 1/4 mile.
Kinda wishing I had a 5sp though just so I could be quicker on the 1/4.

My parents bought me my first car. They spent a whole $200 on an '81 Datsun 510 hatchback. I could see the highway under the pedals. Plus, I had to pay them back $200 + $50 interest. Lol, I learned a lot about cars with that clunker. My next was a '89 240sx. I've still got it. It's gonna be my sons first car in 4 more years.

Ugh, sorry to go off topic. Op, to this day, I have never torqued lug nuts. I've always spun the lug nuts as far down as I could by hand and then with a lug wrench or tire iron I would tighten them in a star pattern. Then I would hit them one last time snugging them down again in a star pattern. I have never had any issues with this method.

You guys have some nice parents! I bought my first car cash with my job at McDonnalds (only place I could get to on a bike at 14/15). My parents wouldn't let me work on the car either, had to pay for all the repairs at a shop. 93 Cherokee sport auto since SUVs are "safer" and manuals are "too hard to learn". Sorry for the vent, you guys are lucky to have parents that support you even owning a car! *jealous

Love my manual stand now, I just appreciate it more!
