mine said something like 15nm+loctite red, either way that's really not much, pretty much hand tight (i mean hand tight with the allen key)

strange that the studs would snap at recommended lug torque values though not good O_O

ED: and how are you guys going with 75mm studs? my 70mm ones are waaaay too long, i'd have been happy with 50mm, or even 40mm long haha.
