Not only that, but I had an issue on my E39 528 when installing new rims where I tightened them hard as I could and it didn't turn out to be tight enough. Twenty miles later the rims actually were wiggling around on the hubs. Bad news. This was reason #1 that I bought a torque wrench.
I had that happen about 500 miles after I rotated my tires last time. I started hearing this weird noise... I guess that's one reason to keep your radio at an acceptable volume. (that and I don't think anyone else wants to listen to my music, unlike 50% of the people on base here.)
p.s. I always use the german torque measurement "Gudentite"
