Mag wheels or steel rims Jorr ??

On Mag rims 25 Nm [on the Toyota type rims with flat shoulder nuts i go 32 NM
Steel rims -- ?? I would guess round 30 Nm [but your friendly Supa Quick or Tiger Wheel dealer should know .. maybe check with the?

Cant be 32 ! That's almost finger tight, I normally tighten to 120Nm on my vehicle with M12 wheel nuts / studs
