Question - Do you lube your lug nuts or not?  If so, what do you torque them too?


I have always used anti-seize and torqued them to 135ft lbs. But last weekend I was going down the highway and my front right tire decided to pass me up.  All 8 lugs were ripped out, and it looks like I had over torqued them. I realize wet the torque should be reduced, but never had a problem until last weekend.


I have a 2007 2500 megacab and the hubs are ~6 months old with ~5k on them.


Any suggestions?

I've been setting to 120 lbs because that's what Alcoa wheels says they like. No problems hauling 3,000 lb camper on 1400 mile round trip journeys twice a year. Only once did I put single drop of oil on the threads.
