As tight as a strong guy with a wheel brace. NEVER use a rattle-gun, despite tyre fitters using them.

I don't know if that is an accurate nm figure... Sorry, I don't have the figures right now, but will get them soon. Why shouldn't you use a rattle gun?? They have torque settings and are used not only by tire fitters (which are admittedly dodgy), but also by any racing team.

I replaced my pads at the weekend after referring to the forums. HHSix (IIRC) quoted the figures from the tech manual for retightening the wheels nuts as 88-108nm / 9-11kgm.
BTW, The ansa was in the Tech Questions forum.

It's usually between 100 and 120 Nm. I'd use 110 - 120, tight enough but not forcing too much on the parts

I forgot all about that! I just tighten the nuts until I feel its right. Usually its best to tighten them up as much as you can with the wheel brace from the car otherwise when you get a puncture in the middle of no where you won't be able to undo them!
btw the figures I quoted came from the Japanese Owners Manual.
