Trailer Wheel Torque Spec Chart


Yes i just saw an expert Michael H. On here telling someone no matter if it is a single or dual wheel trailer torq specs are 75-85 ft lbs. i dont know how this guy is considered an expert. Sounds like an expert idiot to me. Most of the torq specs on 1/2 lug bolt depends on tire size. Most of the ones i do are a 16inch rim and are torqd to 120 ft lbs

I apologize for any confusion on what the proper torque specs are for 1/2 inch lug nuts on trailer wheels. I attached a picture of a chart to the right that details what the proper torque specs are for a trailer wheels lugs based on lug size, wheel size, and wheel material.

Need to know Lug Bolt Size & Torque for 5 Lug 14 inch Duals on 2018 Dutchmen Kodiak Ultra Lite 201qb. 96590

Reply from Chris R.

Unfortunately I can't track down the lug size on your Dutchmen Kodiak as that's not something that trailer manufacturers list. Best bet will be to either measure the lug or simply remove one and take it up to a local hardware store. Once you verify the size you can use the chart shown on the answer page I linked below to find the right torque specs. 71279
