    Default Loccking wheel nuts

    Does anyone know what the torque setting is for the vectra locking nuts? I know the others are 110Nm.
    Cheers Pete

    just had a look at my locking wheel nut case for you, it says to use the recommended torque setting, but does not tell me what the setting is!
    sorry!

    ok thanks mate, but are they not likely to be damaged tightening them as high as others?

    No treat them as normal bolts. Ask yourself why would they be any less than the others as they are doing the same job. No point in having them less than the others as they would be a weak point
