Does anyone know off hand what size spline socket for the outer bolts on the sports classic II wheels?

I forget the size male triple square (spline) needed, but I do recall the torque to retighten was 22ft/lb, secured with a drop of Loctite on each, per the BBS rep.
The Loctite may prevent galvanic corrosion as well as preventing loss of the bolts, since the bolts are titanium threaded into aluminum.
Wurth's silver to match the wheel paint color.

BTW, BBS does not have replacement parts for these wheels, as they were supplied directly to Porsche in Germany for assembly and never stocked nor assembled by BBS .

that's some good info.
my tire shop has the spline tools and offered to remove and replace them, but I am a little anal when it comes to torque etc.. would much rather do it myself.
I have a good relationship with the local hardware store, I am sure they will let me grab a few, see which one fits then come back and pay for the one I need.

Thanks for the torque info.
