The REFERENCE torque spec for a Dodge Challenger lug nut is 140-176 Nm. It is important to torque the wheel nuts properly, especially when replacing the wheels after servicing. If wheel nuts are not tightened correctly, they will ruin the wheels, damage the brake rotor, or even make the wheels come off or bend the studs. Over-torquing the Challenger lug nuts will eventually lead to a rotor break.

Set the torque wrench to the manufacturer’s specifications and tighten the Dodge wheel nuts until the torque wrench clicks. Tighten the wheel nuts in a crisscross sequence. When you’ve tightened all the nuts, go back through the pattern again with the torque wrench to ensure that every single nut is evenly tight. It is highly recommended that get your new Dodge Challenger wheel nuts retorqued after driving approximately 50 to 100 miles.
