The Nut Torque Specifications for a Ford Focus
If you plan to attach the wheels to your Ford Focus vehicle yourself, it is important to tighten the lug nuts to Ford's recommended wheel nut torque specifications. Otherwise you might compromise the safety and quality of your vehicle's handling, as the nuts may be too tight or too loose.
You can find these specifications in your owner's manual or from a Ford dealership.
