Default Lugnut torque specs.

Rotated the tires last night and I checked the owners manual for the torque specs.150 ft lbs seeems a little much.There is no way the factory tightened them that tight.They were too easy to break loose.So what does everyone torque there lugnuts.I have the factory aluminum wheels if it makes a difference.

yes same here! every newer f150 NEEDS to be torqued at 150 ftlbs. if that is what the factory recommends then you should probably do it that high! i would hate to lose a wheel!
