I have a set of these coming, just wondering if anyone else has them and if so what torques do you tighten them to ?
 
one would assume to the same OEM requirements :?:
 
Can I ask where you got these from and how much they were. I am thinking about getting some from the USA.

Ps. torque to 130nm for 996 GT3 and I assume other variants are similar or the same.

Well I thought I would post up a couple of pictures of my lovely new titanium wheel bolts. I should have taken a before picture to really do them justice but hey ho.

I got them from Maxspeed - http://www.maxspeed-motorsports.com to whom I am not affiliated but were/are doing a special offer on the price at the time.

They look great and save weight too. Hopefully these will not rust.

make sure you don't use any cadmium plated tools near those Ti bad boys - it will literally rot the Ti material structure

Interesting, I will bear it in mind. Are many tools made of or covered in Cadmium - ? Saying that though having Cadmium in the wheels would be the real killer as I read that more in terms of constant contact - Cadmium/Titanium so that infusion can take place.
