Hey everyone the set of itps finally came in the other day and I installed them right away they look great and barley fit haha.
My only concern is wheel torqueing specs my manual says 30 ft pounds plus a 1/4 turn doesn't that sound a little to loose?

Loose? No not to me, I'd think 30 ft pounds would be plenty, but I've never heard of xx ft/lbs plus 1/4 turn???

Looks good!!! It's amazing how a set of wheels/tires can completely change the look of the machine!!! :fing02:

How's the tie rod end link clearance up front? Are you running a spacer of any type?

It doesn't touch anything at full lock of steering
Thats with no spacers
It will be interesting to see if it rubs with the suspension at full travel and steering at full lock
Dont realy have a chance to try with the weather over here winter is never ending this year

Book says 75lbs for aluminum wheels but don't tighten them that much you will twist off studs, they are only a 3/8 stud, I just tighten them then ride it awhile and check them, I would guess 35-40 ft lbs, several threads on here about people twisting studs off .

Oh how true this is!

It does look nice. BTW, you said you ended up going with 26" tires? What size are the OEM's? They look tiny compared. :)
