yea i triednot to over tighten them, but then one side turned in on itself, under braking presure, and cracked when it jammed against the rim !!
so no to tight but tight enough !!!
i need a torque wrench and the correct torque tension!!! which would be a complete guess anyway. :lol:

Even at the correct torque spec thay have a tendency to crack under braking load. I just don't think the stock that they are machined from is worth a hoot. Pretty tho.
