Funny you should ask that today (I was going to ask the same thing). Instead I paid the $30 for access to the BMW TIS Site and found out it is 140 N-m (103 Ft-lbs).

I'm thinking about taking my wheels off tomorrow to give them a thorough cleaning and Zaino treatment.

that's quite a bit more than the 88lb-ft for e9x m3 wheels.

That was my reaction. Might be related to the increased size and weight meaning more rotating mass? Although if that were true, torque spec would vary with aftermarket wheels, and I don't think it does.

BMW's have ALWAYS been 99 lb-ft. This is new info for BMW's.

It is SO frustrating that I purchased 2013 Msport FROM a dealer and 2.5 hours after I purchased it, the front left tire blew out with only 6800 miles on the car.

Had to go 3 hours from my house to buy this car and fortunately, or unfortnelty, the tire blew 8 miles from my house, so I was able to get home on the run flat.

Well, Good year stepped up to the plate and covered half of the tire, but the rim was slightly bent somehow. Funny thing is, the dealer provided a CPO showing all 4 tires with the same tire tread on them, yet one of the tires HAD been replaced.

So, I go out today, a couple days later to check the torque (thank you forums for providing the 140 nm torque spec) and the NEW tire was torqued at 350 to 450 NM! 2 of the other three tires were also torqued at this rate with the 4th being correct. Funny how the CPO showed all 4 tires at 120 nm when I bought it though.

All I can say is if you buy a car from Sun Motor Cars BMW in Mechanicsburg, PA, BUYER BEWARE, their CPO is a sham. And they will do NOTHING to help you if there is a problem.

All 4 tires now at appropriate torque, but I can't stop thinking the improper installation and non checking had something to do with the blowout. And NO, I did not spend the 3 grand on the tire insurance. 400 for the tire, and 200 for a re manufacture rim off of ebay from a source I trust.

Don't trust the dealer to torque wheels properly is the lesson... Really? 200-250 lb pounds of torque on a wheel that should be around 100? Do Americans not get the value of German tolerances???

Don't know that I would recommend using the bolts again if the torque was really that much higher. Don't forget - "breaking" torque can be different than the applied torque at the time they were installed...though it sounds like you know that already.
Comical they were done in "Mechanics"burg...
