Non- centre-locks are normally 130 mn, don't forget the Optimoly high temp grease.
Chris @Excel can usually supply it.

Silver wheel bolts are 100 ft lb
Black wheel bolts are 118 ft lb

Black bolts are a replacement only on the earlier cars and standard on the later cars .

What`s with all this ftlb malarky, I know we voted Brexit but Dont know

If your torque wrench is in ftlb`s only then I suggest you get a new one, or at least get yours calibrated as it`s probably way off anyway Thumb

I have some Optimol thankfully, Chris @ Center Gravity gave me some a few years ago Thumb
On the Optimol subject, I only put a smear on the centre of the wheel and never the bolts as per the manual. What's everybody elses regime?
Apologies for shillings and pence chaps! Grin
Thanks for all the input.
