Subject: Re: rear wheel bolts seized!

Hi, this was just some time after putting the summer wheels back on, it was pretty cold, snowed one time a bit and rained alot in the meantime. my air wrench puts out around 300 Nm and i couldnt get the bolts to open with that, the problem is rather that you round off the edges of the bolts i guess. i always torque my wheels to 125 Nm that seems to be just right. i also put a bit of grease on the contact surface. normally i change the tires myself, just this time i bought new tires and also let the place install them. ill never do it again, well atleast the tired (continental ecocontact) were cheap. bye simon
