Proper Torque for Wheel Installation

So I ordered my new wheels and will get them installed late next week. I'm guessing the shop I am using for the install does not regularly deal with Porsche vehicles (my neighbor owns it).

He agreed that they would definately put the wheels on using a manual torque wrench, but I want to make sure he is informed regarding the recommended torque settings.

What is the recommended torque to be used for a 987?

On my '03 S the torque is 130Nm (96 ft-lb) Imagine the 987 is the same.

Yep, 96 ft.lbs. and it's best to retorque them after a few miles driving to insure they seat properly and haven't shifted. Good Luck!...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99
