Stock wheels ft.lbs trqu????

I decided to take off my wheels to clean the inside of them..Now its time to put them back on but I'm having difficulty finding the correct torque setting for my car!!! I looked in the owners manual and nothing!! i find it weird and strange for bmw not to post this somewhere !!! Please reply if anyone knows! I'm thinking anywhere from 85-100 ft lbs ...http://www.m3post.com/forums/images/smilies/mad0259.gif its for my 2011 m3 cep with the competion package which has the y-spoke wheels if it matters thanks...............

88 is correct but anywhere between 80-90 is fine. Won't really make a huge deal of a difference. Its probably not in the manual because BMW does not want people to over-torque it and possibly cause damage to the wheel bolts and the hub thread. Under torque most of the time, is better than over torque, believe it or not because the car is already safe to run on 3/5 lug nuts, and generally unless they are super lose, the wheel wont fall off.

Don't sweat it. Stick with 88. And as noted by some others, being +/- a couple ft.lbs isn't gonna kill ya.

Side note: Germany uses the metric system. So they don't use ft lbs. They use Newton-meters. 120 Newton Meters is 88.something ft.lbs. So the reason it's not a round number is not that it is some super precise value, but rather that it is converted from a round number in metric.

I use 94 because i have been told by some people that race their BMWs + I have used this on the track for hours and hours and never had any issues. No reason for me to change
