      It's amazing what a brand name can do for you, or not.

        The center lock wheels / hubs ARE an option. The standard wheels use 5 regular lugs and a regular torque wrench like almost every other car.

        The center lock wheel options costs something like $4 or $5000, so I guess if you can justify that you can justify the torque wrench. Or letting the dealer deal with it. I doubt many independent tire shops will be able to help you, though.

          I did this today with about 700 miles on the car and several of the lugs were way under 140 lb ft. Glad I read about it here, otherwise I would not have done it.

            I encourage lug nuts to be first check no more than 100 miles if at all possible. I realize that with Museum Delivery that is impossible, but for all the rest...
