And it's really necessary with alloy wheels. When we picked up our 2015 Escape, we drove about 100 km (60 mi.±) to Bay View SP, near Burlington, for our first few nights. Retorqueing/tightening was significant.
Next 90 mi. was to Olympic NP on the Peninsula. Second retorqueing there: noticed some movement.
Third campsite was Bogachiel SP near Forks, WA, about 70 mi..
Third check of torque: all was good. Now, seasonal checks only: all is good.
