Oh good grief I had this figured out years ago.....but can't recall if alloys are 115 and Steel 95 or is it the other way around. Someone help. My brain is failing.......

It's the other way around. 95 for alloy and 115 for steel.

I had a first a couple of months ago. I was walking up to the Range Rover and noticed one of my lug nuts was missing. Well on close inspection, not missing, but the head broke off leaving the narrow section still nicely screwed onto the stud and the other part vanished into roadway heaven. Never, ever had that happen before. The point, perhaps don't over tighten them. Most likely was the boob with an impact gun at the dealer.

The Rover lugs are so crude compared to my *modern* Ford Excursion which actually has decent lug nuts...
