Default wheel nut torque settings?

Hi

Can anyone tell me the correct torque setting for the wheel nuts on an 86"
series 1.

Thanks

Tony Boyle.

I always just tighten them by hand spanner/brace as much as I can. Never
had one come loose that way, whereas I have had them come loose after
being put on with an air tool.

If you're strong enough to shear them, please contact me off group :)

Do them up until they strip and then back them off 1/4 of a turn. ;-)

Seriously though, 100 lb-ft is plenty.

75 to 85 lb/ft - avoid the temptation to over-tighten them as they
can pull through the rim - only seen it once, but the owners trousers
were scrap....
