If you mean the rear spindle castle nut, tighten until wheel will not turn, then back off until it spins freely. The rear wheel hub retainer is 188-254 ft lbs or 255-345 Nm.

Rear wheel bearings keep going after only a short period of use.


When you install the bearing are you replacing the complete hub? The torque spec for this is 130-174 ft.lbs. Also are the rims and tires of stock size?
