Wheel torque settings
Guys, bear with me, 1st post here but active on 2 other automobile forums.
Just took delivery of MY19 CLS53, many of you probably already know there's no spare tire and running Run Flats, a first for me.
Asked local dealer for wheel torque spec.'s as any DIY would, they came back with 75nm initial and 150 nm final, that equates to 55 ft lbs to start and 110+ ft lbs final torque.
To me that sounds too high for 16mm wheel bolts, I have another vehicle with 18mm wheel bolts that requires 96 ft lbs.
Thoughts & suggestions please as there's nothing in the 400+ page manual that I've found yet.
