Does anybody know what the wheel lug nut torque setting is for 18 inch OEM wheels on an 05 M3?

Actually for EVERY BMW it is 120 NM or 88 lbs-feet.

You sure that's right? I could swear it's like around 94lb/ft of torque.

That's what I was told, but even then it sounded high. When I questioned him he said "I guess when you are going a 180 MPH you don't want the wheels to fall off!" :p

He said his cousin (who does all kinds of work around his house and cars) struggled to get them torqued down by hand. His cousin is HUGE too.

I believe Porsche spec is 94 lb/ft... you better have them doublecheck lest he snap his lugbolts. 150lb/ft is insane.
