Can anyone tell me the torque specs for the wheels? I'd like to remove them, wash them thoroughly, apply anti brake dust coating but not sure how much to tighten them.

I have a jack/jack stands and an electronic torque wrench but do NOT want to take the "gutten tight" approach as I've heard that it could warp the rotors.

Lastly, I have the OEM 18" setup with the all-season good year tires...

Thanks all,

Based on a quick search and my past 5 bimmers, I would be using 90 lb ft.
