Why is the Roadster wheel torque different to the fortwo that has exactly the same wheel, suspension, hubs and brakes?
Insert ridiculous reason here. It’s not like the Roadster creates a shit load of power. I had a 450 with more power than a standard Roadster and the 451 turbo has more power than a standard Roadster.
Considering the bolts are quite small compared to other “normal” cars, I wouldn’t recommend over torquing them.
When Should I Check The Wheel Bolt Torque?
If you have taken the wheels off, refit and torque. Recheck the next day and then a week after.
If the wheels haven’t come off, it’s perfectly acceptable to check them every 3 months.
How Do I Check Them?
You really should own a torque ratchet. You don’t need anything high quality.
