    It depends on the wheel, may be worth contacting the manufacturer just to find out the torque required. Also might be worth renewing the bolts so you have a nice fresh thread to minimalise the risk of rounding the internal thread

    i restored already a few old splitrims from bbs and co and i always use loctite to keep everything where it belongs^^
    i think with that you can't go wrong...as i never had any problems...

    You need to use a threadlock on them ideally, such as a suitable grade of Locktite,
