Hello All --

After my first two days of autocross Saturday and yesterday, I decided to proceed with my first upgrade. I will be picking up a set of 17x7 Black Painted Enkei Racing RPF1 wrapped in 235/40R17 Dunlop Direzza ZII later today.

This should keep me in my class...however I am need to get one of those bolt torque machine to take my bolts off and that thing that measures how much pressure is being put on the bolts.

So how much pressure am I suppose to put on my bolts?
Sorry I am not very knowledgeable on this but any help would be appreciate it.

Not sure of the exact specs for the brz but 80ftlbs is usually a safe torque number the lowest iv seen for passenger cars has been 75, max 110. Also the tool you are looking for is a torque wrench.

235 is going to be to wide on that rim just fyi also the direzza II run about 6mm wider in that size.

I forget the exact torque at the moment, but it lists it in the manual somewhere. I think it's around ~85

Edit: Just looked on page 418 of the manual. It's 89 ft. lbs

Between 85 to 90 lbs.

Torque wrench is what you are looking for.

If you want speedy removal invest in a lithium battery operated impact wrench drill to remove the lug nuts. I'd prob get 225. 235 is going to cause excessive side wall bulge.

Good choice in the tires. They will blow you away.
