Just wondering what the proper torque is on the lug bolts for a 2013 Abarth with the stock forged 17s.
Thanks in advance!

I would not use any impact wrench on those lug nuts. When I brought my car in for its first tire rotation, Studio rounded off and stripped al 16 on mine. You couldn't even loosen them with a breaker bar. They did however, replace all of them under warranty. Now I can easily loosen them even with the supplied lug wrench that comes with the car.

Good advice, the stock lugs are capped and they are also kinda crap. I am many others have changed and should never have issues. I know a local guy that had issues with the OEM lugs that led to needing a new wheel. :( (Shop paid not him so at least that worked out for him).

UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE IS NOT WORTH USING ANYMORE!!!!
How many times have they lost an order? Or said it was delivered and it wasn't?
And you wait HOURS on hold for answers...
Does this happen with FedEx? UPS? DHL? NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

Man... Our government ran offices scare me....
"Package was delivered to mailbox".
I check EVERY neighbors box....
on hold 45 mins now...

FAIL.

I switched the bolts out when I went from stock 16's to custom 17s.
The stock bolts are ugly... looks much better now with the Otis bolts.

This is the type I have and prefer. These are harder to steal and the shop would have to actually try to damage the wheels using this style. No more damage to the shaft or seat area, whatever you call it. :cool:

Good points! I did buy them for the security and looks.... But yeah with that adapter and inverted application I should see less scuffs on the "pearly whites"!
