    Hello, I am getting ready to put a set of Magnum 500 wheels on my '68 Fury VIP, I have the correct 1/2" 20 left hand thread conical seat lug nuts. My question is how many ft/lbs should I torque the lug nuts to? I appreciate any information on this. I will post pics when I get them installed!

    Do the torque in steps. 1 -- snug them all down to center the wheel on the hub/axle
    2 -- about 15 lbs/ft
    3 -- split the difference to the total torque in about 2 more segments

    Make sure the studs are clean with no rust on them.

    Remember, right AND left hand studs on those cars, unless they have been changed.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks for all the responses, I really appreciate it. I will probably get the wheels on next week.
