Wheel nuts & spacer nuts - torque settings?

There is probably a previous thread on this, but I can't find it.

I'm thinking of asking the local tyre fitters to fit a set of wheel spacers.

What torque setting should I ask them to tighten the nuts up to?
Is the torque setting the same for wheel and spacer nuts?

Wheels are 133Nm for the alloys or 170Nm for the HD Wolf rims.
No idea about spacers torque. Suggest you do a search on here with "wheel spacers" and see what people have written about them in the numerous threads. Not really unanimously good experience.
Eric You never actually own a Defender. You merely look after it for the next generation.

I'd hope any company selling spacers would give you the correct figures for whatever spacers you were looking at rather than go for figures that may suit other designs.

In fact, asking the question might help you sort some of the better suppliers/kit from the others...

170nm for spacers ideallt with a drop of thread lock but not 100% needed. 130mm for alloys.
