    According to the good old haynes manual depends if your hub nut is 14mm thread or 16mm thread.

    M14 stage 1 115 NM (85 lbf/ft) then stage 2 angle tighten a furthur 180 degrees.

    M16 stage 1 200 NM (148 lbf/ft) then stage 2 angle tighten a furthur 180 degrees.

    These are when using a new stretch bolt, if using an old bolt you will find it hard to achieve these settings as the bolt will already be stretched. I tend to do them nice and tight using a breaker bar if i re-use the old bolt, although i strongly recommend using a new one.

    If I've read it right from Elsawin:

    M14 115NM

    M16 200NM

    Plus half a turn when the wheels are back on.

    It's the bolt in the centre of the hub on the end of the drive shaft.
