    Hi Guys

    I’ve been told it’s 90Lb but it doesn’t seem tight enough.

    If you think it's tight enough it's probably over tightened

    120nm feels like nothing . If you use a breaker bar to tighten then you have prob over done it

    The nuts were definitely over torqued when I had my tyres fitted.
