lug nuts

Picking up my 2014 24FBS Saturday. Was reading in manual that I need to torque the lug nuts often. What size wrench or socket do they take...1/2"?

Probably more like a 3/4" or larger.

Most are 13/16", but check it with a socket from a standard set. You can get a torque wrench from Harbor freight and also a 4-6" extension. The torque wrench isn't Snap-On grade, but you are torquing lug nuts, not building a race engine. The range is 110-120 ft.lbs. I check mine before every trip as well as the truck tires. I also carry an air compressor
