The lug wrench size for Silverado lug nuts is about 22mm (13/16″). When installing truck wheels, a torque wrench is necessary. Properly torquing wheel nuts is critical to ensuring wheel assembly rides smoothly, forces evenly, and performs as expected. While you’re eager to get those first miles on the brand-new aftermarket wheels and tires, confirming the installation is done correctly is necessary. Don’t trust an impact gun can settle everything down.
Because it is hard for an impact gun to ensure each wheel nut is evenly tightened with the same torque. A torque wrench is always the best tool to fasten Silverado wheel nuts. Make sure that the nut threads are clean and dry with no oil or grease. Don’t apply lubrication to the wheel’s hardware. Start threading the hardware by hand, then use the torque wrench to tighten wheel nuts in a crisscross sequence.
