Does anyone know what the lug-nut torque should be for a 1" wheel spacer with tapered nuts?

Is it the same as our wheel lug nuts (40 ft-lbs)?

Should I be using thread locker as well?

You can use thread locker on the oem studs to hold the spacer on the hub but I wouldn't run it on the studs on the spacer to hold the wheel on. Same torque specs as the oem studs.

Perfect. After you put everything on ride around the block and retorque lugs just to be safe.

Unless your spacers have countersunk holes, I wouldn't run tapered nuts. I just learned this the hard way! I've also been told to run anti-seize lube on the studs holding the wheel on.

Thanks trucknuts, the spacers do have countersunk holes that match the tapered nuts.

I did have anti-sieze on the OEM studs, and will be doing this for the spacer studs as well. I always thought you were supposed to do that for wheel studs anyways.
