I have a 2007 Elise. The owner's manual says to torque the wheel nuts to 77 ft lbs (105 Nm). I have a 1999 service manual that says to torque the wheel nuts to 80-85 Nm (59-62.7 ft lbs). I have the sport wheels and am wondering what torque to use.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks.

Ok, I will bite.

If you have a 2007 Elise and the owners manual for it says 77ft lbs, why would you look at a 1999 service manual?

Use 77 ft lbs.

your '99 service manual is probably referring the S1 Elise.
You have the S2.
77 ft. lbs. is your number, I actually put mine up to 80, but I'm just a trouble maker.

As long as you arent' running the 70000 ft/lb impact gun on them, somewhere around 70-100lb/lbs will be fine... it's not THAT fussy!

I beg to differ. If there ever was a car that was "fussy" it's a Lotus... :)
