    sorry but if I knew the answer I would have posted it first time round.

    Try giving Johns Cross Motorhomes a call

    alternatively you could try fiat customer services

    From Fiat...

    For the 10 and 15 versions, tighten the wheel bolts to the recommended torque.
    Value - 16daNm M14 Bolts (160Nm)
    For the 18 version, tighten the wheel bolts to the recommended torque.
    Value - 18daNm M16 Bolts (180Nm)

    If it is any help
    A person I met recently who was selling 6 steel fiat wheels from his new hymer because he'd upgraded to hymer supplied alloys told me this...... They used all his original bolts and he made them put it in writing that this was ok

    Geo has already said that the torque is relative to the thread size not the material I believe

    wheel nut torque is determined by nut size....nowt to do with wheel diameter or material

    M14 = 160nm

    M16 = 180nm
