    Hey All,
    Blew a wheel bearing seal this weekend (great trip, pics soon). Also poked a hole in an MTR, lost a wheel weight so it was 65MPH max on the way home (that was the worst part!!!).

    So what is the best torque? I have the 6 prong nuts (older style?).

    I was going to torque to 25-30ft*lbs on already seated bearings - inner nut of coarse.
