There are, of course, other options: clear fingernail polish (works very well on small screws - I use it all the time for gun stuff) or LocTite #222 (or equivalent) being the bigger ones.

Considering the "force" I've seen needed to break #242, I don't think it's going to be a problem. Breaking torque, as I recall, will still be less than preload torque on lugs!

Sounds like I need to buy a torque wrench and more anti-sieze.....

I happened across the torque spec in my OM today. 85 to 110 pounds.

Default Loose lug nuts

Having the same thing happen on my 07 Grand Cherokee with Aluminium factory rims that are 17 inch. Passenger side lug nuts mainly on rear come loose and from time to time on the front. Keep torquing them down to 110 but after a while they will loosen up.

Thinking about using the lock tight blue to just make sure the bastards dont fly off while on the highway.

Have bought new lug nuts to and will change out the ones that are loose to see if this solves the problem.

  1. This is the Cherokee forum. The Grand Cherokee (different vehicle, should never have had "Cherokee" as part of its name) forum is over here.
  2. Dragging up zombie threads is bad manners.

If your lug nuts are coming loose they were either under torqued or over torqued and stretched the studs.
