Torque for rim bolts, 108 Alloy wheels??

Post by FelixTheCat » Wed Oct 28, 2009 10:00 pm

I aquired a spare front and rear wheel (off ebay) so I could get two of my original wheels refurbished and back to perfection in one go, a side a time (whilst keeping the car on the road....).

Done by Lepsons. All refurbished and looking great, but now I just need to know the torque setting on the 20 bolts for each wheel to fix the centres back on the rims.

I've looked through other postings and there are plenty about the corossion on 108s, refurbishing etc. but I can't find a definitive figure for the torque setting.

There isn't a definitive figure published by BBS to my knowledge.

I've set mine at 30lb/ft and had no issues. I'm more concerned about over than under torquing them in alloy. As it happens I checked all 80 at the weekend and they were spot on, still they would be with Locktite on

Nice work.

How much were Lepsons to do them, and any chance of some up-close pics?

They were highly recommended to me by KDS who operate just next door to them, and I know KDS pride themselves on good quality paintwork :)
