The average weight of a Chevy Tahoe is around 5,500 pounds as of 2014. Chevrolet has produced the Tahoe since 1995 when the Tahoe model name replaced the full-size Chevy Blazer sport utility vehicle. The Chevy Tahoe is very similar to the GMC Yukon in appearance, size, capability and options.
A lug nut is one of the fasteners that attach a car wheel to its hub. A car wheel has four, five, or six lug nuts depending on its make and model.
The appropriate torque for lug bolts varies depending on the vehicle and can range from 50 foot-pounds to 350 foot-pounds. The correct torque specifications for a vehicle can be found in the owner's manual, at a vehicle's dealership or in a repair manual for that specific model and year.
The best tires for the Chevy Tahoe include the Bridgestone Dueler, Michelin LTX and Continental Crosstracker, according to Tirerack. Each listed tire provides a smooth and reliable ride, without sacrificing any factors in performance.
The effect of the wheel lug torque depends on how much the applied torque deviates from the recommended car torque. While overtightened lug nuts cause vehicle vibration during braking, overstretches and weakens the wheel studs, undertightening causes wheel wobbling and unbalance during driving. Corr

A wheel lug nut torque chart indicates the proper amount of torque, or twisting force, to apply to the lugs nuts found on vehicle wheels. Mechanics need to apply proper torque when tightening lug nuts to ensure damage does not occur to the wheels.
Most frequently, use a lug wrench or tire iron to remove lug nuts. Alternatively, use a spider wrench, which is a cross-shaped tool with varying sized sockets on each tip.
