Default New 16" wheels and tires need lug torque for aluminum wheels.

I installed some new 16 " ICW racing wheels on my daughter 98 sc1. I called Saturn and was told to torque the wheels to 65 ft lbs. Everywhere else I read it says 103 ft lbs. Who's correct?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

and make sure your new rims need acorn lugnuts (saturn stock) not flat-faced ones (aftermarket). IOW check that where the nut meets the wheel fits properly.

then you're good to go. 103 ft lbs.

check torque again after driving 50 miles.
