Lug nut torque spec

Sorry to have to post this but I have yet to get a bentley manual; guess i am just lazy. Anyway, I was wondering what the torque spec was on Mk4's (1.8T GTI to be exact, although i don't think that makes a difference). Thanks for your help in advance!

That is precise. If you overtorque your wheels it will cause your rotors to warp over time. FYI [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img]

If you don't torque at all then you are just playing with your life, that's all... [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

thanks for the help guys...

Yeah i definitely know about properly torquing the wheels (I took a shop class in high school). I'm picking up a torque wrench this week so I can install my new rims and tires which should be here next week. Thanks again!
