Simple one here (me) what are the wheel nut torque settings on the 6A?

45-50 lbft according to the owners manual - I’m a little suspicious of that though as there’s only one figure for two types of wheel (alloy and steel).

It’s possible to pull the stud through the hub, so that figure sounds about right to me. Maybe alloys and steels require the same torque for that reason?
