    I'd say 110ft/lbs sounds like a lugnut. and I suppose it all depends on if you're using 5/16's or 3/8th's bolts as to what tq you gonna use. Thats sounds like a 1/4" bolt actually. Are they 1/4's on the lockring? Mine were 8 stud hummer rims so tq on the 5/8th's stover nuts was way higher than what you're gonna use.

    Yeah, that sounds right for Allied. My friend runs a set. The biggest thing with all of the beadlocks is to go around them until you are blue in the face torqueing them over and over. They need to be even or they will loosen up. We generally go around them 4-5 times after they reach the torque spec.
