Documented means of ensuring that wheel nuts are always subject to an initial torque. Use our Torque Tag (product code WNTT) for this. A record of a re-torque should be in place and these records are required to form part of the vehicles maintenance history.
It is vital that following a wheel fitting, the wheel nuts are re-checked for tightness after the vehicle has stood for a period of 30 minutes, whether the vehicle has moved or not, or after 40-80 kilometers (25-50 miles) using a calibrated torque wrench set to the manufacturer’s specified torque value* as laid down in BSAU 50: part 2: section 7a:1995.
