Any of you with the Helm's manual - can you provide me with the torque spec for the alloy wheels on an EX and the steel wheels on the LX.

Ya beat me to it.


Yes, I found 80 ft/lbs for all years, all wheels. If anyone found something different, let us know.

Just got my wheel lock today. What's the tolernace for 80 ft-lb +/- ??. Since I don't have torque wrench. have to figure out how to torque it myself? Does anyone know where I can get a cheap torque wrench for wheel?
Thanks!

I bought a cheap one ($20) from the local auto accessory store just to do my wheels.

Assuming a cheap wrench is accurate to within 5% or so, it's probably good enough.

I run snows in the winter on our EX and have rented a torque wrench from the local rental center. It cost six bucks for 1/2 day. Good ones cost well over $100 and since I can't convince my DW that it's a good tool to have around, the rental charge is well spent.

I've had a hard time finding one lcoally at a reasonable price. I found that e-bay has quite a few with prices rangeing from $10 and up http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?MfcISAPICommand=G etResult&ht=1&SortProperty=MetaEndSort&query=torque+wrench

and the tire rack has one as well

I might spend the $30 for the tire rack one. I've had good luck with them on 2 purchases.
