I always did 112 on the GT4, I think that was what the workshop manual stated.

There should be something online for the gen7 too

I always do the wheel nuts upto this torque and then check them after 30 miles or so

the problem is these are the spline locking type , i mean they are still steel either way :)

103 Nm is correct for gen 7 :)

so that should be the correct measurement for the above wheel nuts too then :)

Someone advised me 70nm when using spacers, should I go tighter? They have been fine for over a year mind...

Freakyparts bolt on spacers state no more than 70lb/ft which is equal to 95Nm. Wouldn't want to overtighten them being alu.

Use an extendable wheel wrench, and you can tell when the nuts are tight enough. Absolutely no need to measure Nm.

Yup - I use one of these. Extended to undo, closed up to tighten, and tighten as much as I can :D
