The ones that hold the rim to the hub?  Its a German requirement.  Goodntight.  I would guess 50-60 ft lbs would be good enough. D17 service manual just had me torque the 1/2" engine mount studs to 70.

Thank you. I just had two new tires put on the hubs and couldn't find the torque in any of my manuals.

x2! I've had them loosen off before, even after using a long cheater to tighten them the first time.

I can remember my Dad having front wheels getting loose on our WD loader tractor. He'd by a new rim (because the old one was ruined) and install it. Within a year it was loose and ruined again, all because he never kept re-checking the torque of the bolts as the paint and rust and dirt worked out between the parts that were clamped together. Oil the bolt threads too !!!!

yes and keep in mind it is the fit of the center pilot to the hub raised cast circle that bears the weight as well. Under heavy load the 5 or 6 bolts have to have the center fit to help bear the load and not fatigue the metal. .

Get longer wheel bolts "M.E.Miller Tire has them" and put lock washers and nuts on the back side of the hub.
Best fix I have found for loader tractors wheels that loosen up.
