Hmm. The factory recommends 110Nm for the ur-quattro's Ronals.
IMO this is too low - I torque at 125Nm.

I agree with Phil and Paul. My owner's manual for the '90 V8 states 80 ft
lbs(110 Nm). I always tighten to 85 ft lbs (115 Nm). Also note that these
are COLD torqueing specs. Aluminum wheels tend to expand when hot. If you
torque a hot wheel (from spirited driving/braking and such), I would go 95 ft
lbs. The lug bolts on audis are very strong. JMHO.
