Cheers Colin, seems quite high that and having had two front tyres fitted I know the bloke putting the wheels back on came nowhere near so I'll loosen and re-torque them to be on the safe side. H.

It is actually surprisingly low. People will normally go way over that figure if they aren't using a torque wrench and just use a brace.

103 Nm = 76 ft lb in old money.

Garages and tyre shop windy guns are often set much higher than this, which can give you a headache if you have a puncture.

I always reset mine after someone else has been fiddling with my wheels.

They shouldn't be fitting them with a gun - if they do stop them - or at least never darken their door again.

I do stop them, rarely do they pull out a torque wrench to nip up the wheels without first being prompted.

 

I've found a few that do torque properly tho, so they aren't all bad.
