Wheel Torque 162 ft.lbs?

Recommended Posts

I need someone to confirm that I'm reading this correctly. My owner's manual reads 162 ft.lbs. of torque. 162 seems specifically random. SMH %?

That sounded excessive to me , so I checked my ST owners manual, and it does say 162 ft lbs.    My Escape was 100 ft lbs  and I see the 2007 to 2014 Edge 18" are 100 ft lbs but the Edge 2015 to 2016  is 150lbs for the 20 inch. I also saw on a chart that the Excursion and F-250 were listed at 165 lbs.

Ok then, thank you for the confirmation. I've been changing wheels on many different vehicles for a long time. I'm used to seeing 80, 100 and yes, the occasional 150. I wonder how they came up with a number like 162. As if we were going to have problems @ 161 or 163. I'll just chalk it up to some engineer who gets paid way more than me. Thank you for the reply.
