Wheels: Volk TE37
Lugnuts: McGard Spline Drive, closed-end

Can I just use OEM torque spec or do these additions change things enough to use a different torque spec?

What do you folks torque to for your aftermarket wheels?



Thx

Don't get Kyokugen lug nuts. The key will break and you will be screwed.
Sounds like someone is speaking from experience? :)

Thx for the info guys. Sounds like OEM spec will do it then.

Since the torque is really just a measure of bolt (stud) stretch, use the factory specs if you didn't change out the studs.

stock torque spec is fine.

I have used Kyokugen in the past (and still do on the MR2) No bad experience here.

You can always get some Rays lugs.

I've got a set of McGard spline drive (see first post). I'll report back on how these perform. I don't believe in lightweight lug nuts (why skimp for weight on something so important, ya know?). Hopefulyl the McGard will be a good combination of reliability, functionality, and security.

Since the torque is really just a measure of bolt (stud) stretch, use the factory specs if you didn't change out the studs.
I agree. I suspected it may be more dependent on the studs that the stuff being sandwiched between the hub and lug nuts. Thx!
