My 2 cents that some members may disagree with. When reinstalling, you can’t get the wheel lugs “too tight”. I’ve never used a torque wrench. I have an 18” breaker bar. I then slip over the shaft of the breaker bar a 4’ long length of 1 1/2 copper tubing sl essentially I have a 4’ breaker bar. I tightened the lung nuts evenly until they give me a eeeeeeecccch. sound. They are now tight and in 50 years never had a problem with a wheel.

Thats actually a great idea from Peter. I may try a couple of these lug nut bolts just to see how they fit.I doubt using these are going to drop us a few points in judging. How would any judge really know these were on a car.

The only thing I would check is to make sure the conical taper of new lug bolt is the same as Cord

Do you carry the breaker bar and 4 foot pipe in the car for when you have a flat? The eeeeccch sound is lug nut talk for STOP.

I took them off with my 18V impact gun. Should I be putting them on with a bar instead?
