I picked 5 of these up from Lunatic Customs today! I can't wait to get them mounted....
You are the master Phil. You take advice to the next level and I'm glad you're back around! :beer:FWIW I found a micro torque wrench in in/lbs is better than using a bigger one in ft/lbs. I use the same marks as marcus, but use chalk on the tire and do 4 smaller marks every 4 bolts. After getting them all snug by hand, I do one pass at 145 in/lbs (12 ft/lbs), then start at 180 in/lbs (15 ft/lbs). For new tires it usually takes me 5 or 6 passes to get them all tight. Then I check them every 4-5 days for about 3 weeks. As the bead gets squished into shape they will torque down some more. A good wheeling trip will usually speed this process up and after torquing them down afterwards they are usually pretty well done.
If you use anti seize adjust your torque settings for wet bolts. The max torque for Grade 8 5/16" x 18 bolts is only 25 ft/lbs, this drops to 18 ft/lbs when wet.
Yeah. I would send a pic right now except I dont have the wheels yet and I am sure I will need to spend some alone time with my grinder and sheet metal before all is said and done.:laughing:You are the master Phil. You take advice to the next level and I'm glad you're back around! :beer:
Guiness...I can't wait to see your crazy wheels and tires installed my brother! Now get back out on the porch!
