Thanks in advance.

Would it be the same for the AC Schnitzer Type III Racing wheel?

I generally just tighten them as much a humanly possible with the lug wrench. I then slip a 6' piece of pipe over the lug wrench handle and torque them until I hear a small crack from each one. ;)

Easier to just jump on the end of the pipe...


Reminds me of the rear wheel/axle nut on old VW bugs... 30mm nut, 324 ftlbs. If you didn't have a wrench, use a big chisel and a 2 lb hammer- just smack the crap out of it. EXACTLY 324 ftlbs.

I'm new here and need to buy some wheel locks, and in looking at torque specs and trying to figure out what I need to get came across your post from last year. And I'm still laughing. Good one!

If you are looking for wheel locks, I'd recommend RAD locks or McGard Ultra High Security locks.

The RAD locks are available from www.prestigewheel.com. The McGard locks, last time I checked, were not imported to the USA.

The Ultra High Security lock is a newer lock, introduced about 1 1/2 to 2 years ago. It's NOT their standard lock, it's a much better and harder design to get off, so if you look at McGard, make sure they are Ultra High Security models. Check out the picture:

They have a spinning ring on them.

Yes, they're at Beastpower

The text at this link says get the 25.5 mm length for stock setup, which I assume is correct for front 18x8 and back 18x9.5 wheels. More expensive than the Rad locks at the Prestige site, but I assume you get what you pay for.
