    Thread: front wheel stud torque specs.

    1. 06-30-2007 07:10 PM #1
      I'm putting spacers on right now and i had to modify my hub centric rings a bit, so i want to make sure all the wheel studs are torqued equally.

      Anyone know how tight they need to be?

      Thanks in advance.

      -Jon.

      ok. I believe you.

      But everyone wants a second opinion.

      it's 89.
      90 will work.

      make sure you re-torque them after driving for a bit. sometimes spacers do weird things, never hurts to make sure.

      I torque all wheels to 94 foot pounds.

      My chart at work says 85. but i do 100 on pretty much everything.

      What size spacers do you have? Just ordered myself a set & wasnt sure about fitting issues. How did you get the fronts 2 fit right??

      Jesus Christ. 5 different torque specs in this thread.

      The CORRECT torque is 89 ft-lbs (that's what it says in Bentley btw NOT 82). You really shouldn't over-torque your bolts (or under-torque for that matter).

      This is correct, listed multiple times in the Bentley.

      Yes, and over torquing is never a good idea. When you over torque, you can then next time push it even further. This will happen each time until stripping becomes apparent. Follow the Bentley and you should be fine
