    The Karrier ST175/80R13 said torque 75-85. Flagstaff Mac 228D said torque at 90-95. So which one do I adhere to???

    Follow your camper's manual - it depends on the wheel, not the tire. My 12" wheels have 5 off 1/2" studs, and I use 90-100 Ft. Lbs.

    You don't torque the tires ...... you torque the wheels. 90-05 foot pounds recheck after first 100 miles.

    BTW - since the wheel studs on my Jeep and on my ALiner are 1/2-20, I changed all my lug nuts to be the same - one socket fits all of them, including the two spares on the tire carriers.
