For anyone out there running Torque Thrust wheels (mine are ET's) on their Stang, to what amount do you safely torque the lugnuts to on them ? Mine are on a 390 car so I want them good & tight, but the wheels seem like they would be somewhat fragile so I don't want to overdo it. Any good or bad experiences or advice with these wheels ? Thanks all.

If you think your wheels are somewhat fragile, I wouldn't have them on the car! I torque the wheels on my truck (with 33" tires on aluminum wheels) to 100 ft-lbs. I don't see why your wheels would be different but check with a tire shop to be sure.

Someone please buy my Ski Doo!
