Q: What is the torque setting on my tire nuts? - 2017 Subaru Legacy

asked by on

What do my tire need to be torque to in foot pounds
My car has an automatic transmission.

Your lug nuts should be torqued to 80-90 foot pounds. This is fairly standard on most cars. You may want to check the torque after the first few hundred miles as well since lug nuts sometimes back off a bit after being tightened.

If you need any assistance with your lug nuts, be sure to have a professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, tighten them to their proper torque.
