Warning and advisement, check your wheel lug nut torque which should be 150 ft/lbs.

With 500 miles on my Bronco Raptor I removed the OEM tires and wheels this weekend to find my lug nuts were not even 100 ft/lbs, a couple of them barely snug, I was shocked.
At the MAP factory the wheel lug nuts are all installed simultaneously and torqued by machine. All other Broncos and Rangers assembled at the plant the wheel torque is 100 ft/lbs. However our Bronco Raptors require 150 ft/lbs, same torque value as the F-150 Raptor.
My suspicion is the machine was not changed or set to 150 ft/lbs. for my Bronco Raptor.

If you don't have a Torque wrench, visit your Ford dealer, Discount tire, or your favorite tire store for a quick check. It should be a no charge visit.

Below screen shots taken from our owners manual. Only this first screen shot pertains to our Raptors.

I changed my lug nuts and wheel locks myself so got it done myself…but thinking back some were far easier to loosen than others.

I just checked mine and they were a bit under torqued as well.

Does anyone know what the torque spec is for the Bronco Raptor spare tire lug nuts? I think the standard Bronco calls for 41 ft-lb?
