Method Race Wheel Bolt Torque

I have been given conflicting information on the method race wheel bolt torque on our 2018 Sprinter 4x4. Would appreciate input on what the bolt torque should be. Have been told 110 and 130. Thanks

Fitz, thank you. I went around with my tire guys, that first wanted 177 ft-lbs as read from a printed chart. We rechecked the Mercedes manual and then returned to his computer program and approached the torque question from another way. It said 133 ft-lbs. So, with your esteemed advice, I was able to make an informed decision. 133 ft-lbs it is.

Great! Don’t forget to check them again after running them down the road after the initial set, things sometimes have a way of loosing up.
