Tighten Wheel Lug Nuts Service & Cost

What is tightening the wheel lug nuts all about?

Whenever a car’s wheel has been taken off, it should be replaced and the lug nuts properly tightened. By properly, we mean with a torque wrench that tightens the nuts to the manufacturer’s specification. Many workshops simply use air wrenches that frequently over tighten the lug nuts. This is potentially dangerous and destructive, because it can damage the wheel, stud and lug nut, as well as warp the disc brake rotor.

Keep in mind:

  • Every car has a recommended torque figure for the lug nuts.
  • There is a sequence best followed for tightening the lug nuts.
  • Any kind of grease or anti-seize compound should not be applied to the threads
  • Even without a wheel removal, it’s advisable to check the lug nuts from time to time.

How it's done:

  • The vehicle is raised and supported on jack stands
  • The wheels are installed and the lug nut installed by hand then only tightened enough to hold the wheel snugly
  • The vehicle is lowered off of the jack stands till the wheel just touches the ground and torque the lug nuts to specifications in a star pattern
  • The vehicle completely lowered to the ground and completed till all wheels are done

Our recommendation:

Have your wheels checked at every routine maintenance service, and ask the mechanic to make sure the correct torque levels are being observed.

What is a common symptom indicating you need to tighten the wheel lug nuts?

  • Clunking or rattling sound from the wheels.

How important is this service?

Since there is a danger of wheels coming off or of damage being done to the wheels or their attachment studs, you need to be sure that the correct procedure for tightening the wheel lug nuts has been followed for your vehicle. If there's any doubt, get an inspection from one of our expert mechanics as soon as possible.

Very happy. I booked a ball joint replacement that a tire store told me I needed. Clarissa checked and that was not really what the car needed; it needed a control arm bushing instead. I appreciate the honesty and saving me from work I did not need. Clarissa was easy to talk to and work with.

First of all, I had higher expectations from this service. Everything he did, I could have done myself. It was not worth the money. The level of professionalism was very casual and average. He checked a few things and said that I should buy it because it is well worth the money. My concerns were kind of brushed off. He was at least kind. Not even five miles after driving the car off of the lot, I notice the check engine light. I have not gotten it checked because of the cost and anxiety. I wanted this service because the last time I bought a car, the check engine light came on a few days later and started a bunch of problems. Months later with this car, it has began to sound super rough and has been leaking fluid since I brought it home. It's pretty bad. I have been putting this off because the thought of it brings me anxiety and make me sad.
