Just installed a set of four American Eagle wheels, size is 17 x 8 with 20mm offset and 5.19 back spacing.
The wheels fit (clearing the front caliper by only 1/16th). Test run up to 70 mph reveals they are balanced nice.
Here is my question. The center of the new wheel is pretty thick which makes the stock lugs sort of short. The lug nuts the shop gave me to use only fit on the studs about 4.5 - 5 turns. Torqued them down to 83 foot pounds like the owners manual indicated but my son who works at a tire change shop told me 5 turns isnt enough and the situation is dangerous.
I contend I'll recheck the lugs with the torque wrench after a 100 miles or so and if they are still tight all is well.
What do you think?
