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?

 

Thanks,

Philo

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.
