How to Improve BMW F97 Wheel Bolts Safety?
It is very important to ensure your BMW X3M wheel bolts are torqued to the correct specifications. Even if there is only one wheel bolt that is undertorqued, it can continue to loosen itself through the vibrations while driving at high speed. As a result, it will unseat the wheel from the hub and create additional vibrations as it spins erratically. Over torquing your wheel bolts can have similar effects. The stretched wheel bolts can lead to warped brakes as loads are distributed unevenly across the hardware. The previously-mentioned cracking and shearing can also separate the wheel bolt from the hub, and potentially lead to catastrophic wheel loss.
