Hi , Does anybody know the correct lug nut torque for a 2010 Chrysler Sebring Touring?
Just got my first torque wrench and want to save my brakes, tires, and alignment.

Welcome to the forum. Lugnuts are across the board torqued to 70lb-ft cross patterned to go equally.

And that should probably be dry. No oil, antiseize or other lubricant allowed.

Check your owners manual. Directions for changing a tire are on p328. Safe vehicle jacking and support practices are a must. It looks like 100 ft/lbs (135 N/m) final torque.

No wonder there are always complaints of warped rotors and the likes. I have been known for breaking the occasional bolt of various sizes, really surprised the torque is that high, can just see my wife or daughter changing a tire and tightening the lug nuts to 100lb-ft, not really a viable torque with the handle they supply, but sure bet it wouldn't come off.

I've been torquing all of my Mopar lug nuts to 100 ft.lb for over 20 years.

Back in the "oil lightly" days it was 60-65 ft lbs. Same lugs dry (since about 1980) are 90-100.

Discount Tire has a lug nut torque chart. Click on the "Info Center" to find it and a ton of other tire related info.
My 96 Sebring LXi is also 100ft-lbs. Anything less and they come loose.
