    Advice on Seating wheel studs

    My wheel stud conversion kit finally arrived from Motorsport hardware. When fitting the wheel studs (M14) is there a recommended torque spec for seating? Do I need a dab of loctite too?

    What do they look like?

    It might be best to contact the manufacturer about the best way to torque them down.

    long nosed with allen key fitment. A shoulder between the seated part and the actual stud that the rim fits on.

    50ft/lb is only 68Nm. The wheel bolts are usually 120Nm aren't they? I'd go at least to that with a dab of loktite.

    i just figured it came down to the mating surface, the wheel bolts have a much larger area against the wheel lines than just the stud going into the hub

    Golfs 120Nm - which isn't very tight.
