Hand Tightened Torque
Waukegan Tire hand tightens the lugs on your auto according to factory specifications. Over time, oxidation and rust can build up on your wheels and hubs; also the studs can become stretched from removing and installing lugs during normal maintenance. When we remove your wheels to check the wheels, hub and rotor, we remove as much build-up as possible. During normal driving, alloy wheels will sear on the hub and can lose some applied torque. The torques of lugs must be checked within 50 miles of service to ensure correct settings and re-torque as needed.
