Toyota Land Cruiser Wheel Lug Nut Torque


What is the wheel lug nut torque setting for Toyota Land Cruiser?

When installing a wheel on your Toyota Land Cruiser, you must torque the lug nuts to the manufacturer's recommended lug nut torque per your Toyota Land Cruiser Owner's Manual, as the torque differs by year. Based on various online sources, we have found the following wheel nut setting for Toyota Land Cruiser by year:

  • 1998-2021 Toyota Land Cruiser 97 ft-lb, or 131 Nm (you can go as high as 100 ft-lb). 
  • 1994-1997 Toyota Land Cruiser 108 ft-lb, or 147 Nm (you can go as high as 110 ft-lb). 
  • 1985-1993 Toyota Land Cruiser 116 ft-lb, or 158 Nm (you can go as high as 120 ft-lb). 

To properly tighten your wheel nuts on your Toyota Land Cruiser to the manufacturer's recommended specs, you will need an accurate and properly calibrated torque wrench. Please make sure that the wheel nuts or bolts are torqued while the wheel is "in the air" but the vehicle has been lowered, which means the wheel has to be as close to the ground as possible, almost touching the ground or pavement (use wheel chokes to stop the wheel from spinning when torquing the wheel nuts or bolts). This is to ensure proper torque reading and wheel setting.

For safety reasons, in order to avoid vehicle damage or personal injury, proper lifting equipment is required when torquing the lug nuts on your Toyota Land Cruiser. Only use the jacking points indicated in your Toyota Land Cruiser Owner Manual, and always activate the emergency brake before jacking the car. In addition, use jack-stands properly placed under your vehicle when leaving the car suspended for a while, or if you have to get under the car for any reason.

Do not over-torque or under-torque the lug nuts on your Toyota Land Cruiser!
