Hi. Working on my son's 380 CE Benzo, we found that some cretin had torqued the lugs to about 160 lbs. Trying to remove a rim with this torque, under roadside emergency conditions, with the manufacturer's lug wrench is impossible. Therefore, check your lugs' torque and tighten to about 75 lb/2. Happy Motoring. Sig in Vacaville, CA.
