Ok here's a quicky put a new rear tyre on my stelvio today when I removed the rear caliper some thread came out with one of the bolts its the first time ive removed it its prob had 4 or 5 tyres with previous owners when I looked closely at the bracket I could see the bolts dont go all the way in about 10 mm of thread was unused the bolts measured 25mm long so I substituted them for 30mm ones giving much more purchase they snuged up fine with some locktite, I may need to Helicoil them in the futre but theyre fine for now I think its well worth a look next time your rear caliper is off. Also I torqued the rear wheel bolts up to 80 Lbs ft as recomended it seemed a bit on the heavy side to me what do you guys think ??, HTH, Jon.

Rear wheel bolts are 110Nm.
Plenty on here about loose wheel bolts and wheels falling off.

What Wayne said. 110Nm or 82ft-lbs is necessary.
