Anyone know what torque setting for the wheel nuts? I'm bolting the hub adapters on and what to do it once and right.
I looked in the genuine Workshop manual, at the back of Chapter 3 it says in the specification section "Wheel Nut 150nm". I'm just double checking as this seems a lot higher than I had imagined?

my workshop manual says 120nm. when i checked my adaptors the other day i did all the adaptor nuts to 150nm, back was easy with handbrake on but on the front i put some old wheel nuts on the adaptor studs and used a piece of water pipe in betwen the nuts to push in the other direction as the tension wrench. took every bit of effort i had to get the front to 150nm

I torqued all mine to 150nm yesterday. Dad held the adapters still with a bar while I did it.

135 is the reccomended, but 150 won't hurt.
Are you aware of the illegality of hub adapters?
