    Hi all
    I drive my Zuki mini almost daily and after over three years on the road it's time for new tires. Looked in my manuals ( also did a site search ) and nowhere can I find lug nut torques. Want to make sure the tire shop doesn't over torque and brake something. Anybody know these specs?
    This is for my 95 Suzuki Carry.
    Thanks, Randy

    I torque mine at 70 Ft. lb. and it seems to work.

    Thanks Jim
    Got my new tires put on today and had the torqued to 70 Ft lbs. These are 13" Chevette wheels and when they looked up a Chevette 70 was right in line.
    But the guys at the tire store said " a Chev what? " LOL
    Went with Mastercraft ( Cooper ) Glacier 175/70r13. Kind of funny they look a lot like the Firestone Transforce A/T tires I just put on my Ford F250 Superduty, except in a much smaller size of course. I think they will work out well.
    Thanks again for your reply,

    could I ask how much you paid for those tires. Up here in Canada I think were getting hosed.

    I paid 343.72 at Belle Tire for 4 tires. Mounting, balancing, valve stems and old tire disposal.
    These were purchased during a one day sale. $50 off the reg price.
    I think they marked up 100 bucks so they could put em on sale for 50 bucks off :confused:
    So did I do OK or did I get hosed?
