As a matter of curiosity, can anyone tell me why the wheel-nut torque on the MS is so high - 129 lb ft (175nm)? Cars I have dealt with over the years have all required about 70 - 80 lb ft. My wrench does go high enough but I don't know whether I could push it that far; good thing one will not have to do it at the roadside!

2.2 tonne, 0-60 in 2.8s.... those wheels take some forces..
(the forged alloys are metallurgically stronger than cast alloys)
