Looking for the right torque figure for a 330i with 17 inch wheels.
Also would that be the same as a 318i with 16 inch wheels?
Thanks.

I'm not exactly sure what you are asking..but as a novice what I would say is:

Dinan offers a differencial change in the back-end that will give you more Torque vs. stock on 0-60 runs...it's been specifically architechtured to avoid shifting to 3rd on 0-60 runs. Yet another Dinan upgrade on my list.

I guess I should have been more clear.
I am looking for the proper torque for the wheels when you take them off and replace them.
I have been torquing the lugs at 88ft-lbs, after talking to a friend who is not BMW familiar he told me that is too tight.
I have seen on the net guys say 88ft-lbs is right.
Just wondering.
Thanks,
Rob
