Default Re: Torque on wheel bearing bolts

You can check the 'hardness' of the bolts by how many 'lines' the head has on it. The lines are raised and are aligned radially out from the center of the top of the bolt. I would think that these bolts would have 6 lines in it if they are that small and need such a high torque

Some info:
