    Question Lug Nut Torque? Tire Rotation

    I hit 5000 miles on my 2003 SR5 Sequoia and considering rotating the tires. The truck has the 16" alloy wheels and I need the lug nut torque specs. I looked in the owner's manual and the only information I could find was to " check that wheel nuts are tight ". I've also heard of owners ending up with vibrations for various reasons after rotating the tires. My truck is driving perfect now, should I leave it alone and forget about extending the tire life or am I missing something? Thanks in advance.

    The Tundra owner manual lists the torque. Seems like you should be able to find in there somewhere. If not in the section on changing a tire, maybe in the back of the book, or under the spec section?

    Hey Glenn, does your owner's manual say 81 ft. lbs. or 83? Mine says 83 for the 2000 Tundra.

    I was going by the Repair manual which says:

    2000 - Torque: 110 Nm (1,150 kgfcm, 81 ftlbf)

    However,
    2001 - Torque: 110 Nm (1,150 kgfcm, 83 ftlbf)
    2002 - Torque: 110 Nm (1,150 kgfcm, 83 ftlbf)
    2003 - Torque: 110 Nm (1,150 kgfcm, 83 ftlbf)

    Which of us has had his torque wrench recently calibrated and knows that it's accurate within 2 ft-lbs?

    I even calibrated the equipment I use to calibrate with.

    They do need to be calibrated on a fairly regular basis.I guess that depends on the amount of use/abuse the wrench is getting.

    Where can I take or send my torque wrench to be calibrated? I have a very nice one that I picked up from Tire Rack a few years ago. Thanks.
