Torque?

2016 Reserve with 20" wheels. Manual says 100 foot pounds. Just want to confirm that is coorect, didn't know if manual was written for 18s. Had to replace a tire, screw in the sidewall, not cheap.

100 foot pounds has been standard for some time. My 2015 is the same. When you torque them down initially it is recommended that you then drive for ~50 miles or so and re-torque them again. I never did this second step - and fortunately I've not lost a wheel - so I've got that going for me.

All of the capacities and specs can be found in the manual. I always recommend that people use the HTML version on the Lincoln site. It has the most accurate and up to date information you can find.

Yep, tire store put that on the invoice, 50 miles and re torque. They are pretty good and fast about doing it so I will have them check all 4 wheels, not just the new one. Hard to believe they can't fix a sidewall puncture but I have heard that they are not allowed for liability/legal reasons.

Correct... it is the weakest part of the tire and patches rarely hold for the time needed to get a full life out of the tire. And driving down the highway and blowing a tire will not likely have a positive outcome. They won't fix holes in the tread close to the sidewall, too.
