I changed the oil and rotated the tires today. Beisdes finding out that the TPMS can not relearn manually (that's another post) I also realized how tight the 140 ft lb torque spec is for the wheel lugs. I can tell you for sure that the lugs did not come from the factory that tight, or lossened up over 8500 miles. Using a torque wrench and a 7/8" socked i torqued all the lugs to spec and am exhausted with aching hands. Just a heads up to check the lug torques for all out there.

I know the owners manual calls for 140 ft. lbs but that seems very high to me. Most cars and trucks I have owned have been in the 80-90 ft lb range and many had aluminum wheels.
