    I want to rotate my tires.....................

    Like the title says, I am rotating my tires on my formula and I was wondering how tight should I tighten the nuts?

    With google giving you an immediate answer to this question, I assumed you were trolling with this thread. As did others judging by the replies.

    Agreed. I just make sure they're snug in a cris/cross pattern and check them again after I've done some driving. So far, so good.

    140Nm is around 100lb ft. So that makes sense.

    Yes, but trucks, SUV's, Camaro, CTS, and a few others are 140 lb ft.

    My SS is 140. What's odd is the G8 has the same axles and studs, and was 120.

    Torque them until they strip, then back off one-quarter turn.

    Thanks for all the answers, I can always get an answer on here. Some of the answers are just some guys screwing around (no harm intended, I'm sure) but other answers are true on. Once again...…… Thanks!
