Toyota Tacoma Lug Nut Torque Setting

Sparky Express

What is the lug nut torque setting for Toyota Tacoma?

When installing a wheel on your Toyota Tacoma, you must torque the lug nuts to the manufacturer's recommended lug nut torque of 83 ft-lb, or 113 Nm (you can go as high as 85 ft-lb). 

To properly tighten your wheel nuts to the manufacturer's recommended specs of 83 Ft-Lbs (113 Nm), 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 chocks 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 Tacoma. Only use the jacking points indicated in your Toyota Tacoma 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 Tacoma!
