I drove semi trucks and we had to get a retorque within 80-100 miles or as close as possible to this, depending on where the next tire shop was that could handle a big rig. If even one lug nut moved a little bit, we then had to get another retourque done. Retorque after retorque until no lug nuts moved. Was this overkill? Maybe but we never had any wheels come flying off. I check the torque on my truck and trailer on a regular basis just to be safe.
