I wound up buying 20 new lug bolts made by Febi Bilstein. 19MM heads so the plastic caps fit. I think it's the lip after the hex head that holds the plastic caps. I'm gonna' work on getting the last stripped locking bolt off today. The other three came off after some wrestling w/a 24" breaker bar. Not putting security bolts back on.

Where'd you get those?....

Bought them from the link below.

As a side not got the last security bolt out today. The 22mm socket hammered on and spun with a torque gun removed the collar. A 3/4" E-socket was then used in the torque gun and after some hesitation it broke loose. The ass clowns at the tire install place most definitely did not follow the VW TSB I gave them. The last time they'll have me as a customer.

Great review,I will get the TSB and have it when I go to the dealer for tire changes. I didn't see any reference to the LBS of torque for the wheel installation . Is there a standard for the hand torquing ? THX

Funny how VW puts out a TSB for wheel shake and only includes the initial torque. Most people who have done the TSB themselves have said to torque the bolts in a star pattern @ various #'s starting with 30 Nm and ending with 133 lbs-ft. In lbs-ft I do 30/60/90/110/133.

Has anybody changed the T3 hubs to the older style T1 which has the concentric shoulder? If the old style hubs are dimensionally the same then it might be the way to go! :)

You know that you can just make hubcentric rings if you've identified that's the solution you require.. much more cost effective than swapping hubs, etc

This has anyone tried this fix?

Also I have a 2017 touareg this tsb fix was applied to my suv at 10k but as tires got worn the shake came back my question is has anyone tried switching to like 18in wheel and an all terrain wheel? Has this helped? I am about to buy a new set of wheels and I would love to get some all terrain wheels

Trust me you will be in a worst place with a bmw...if I need to replace a set of tires at 60k no problem but replacing most suspension and bushings at 60k its insane previously had a x3 and x5

Love my bmws but yup not great when the maintenance comes around
^^When you date a supermodel, you have to accept that constant little nitpicking demands are part of the package.

Oh, my tires on not torqued right. My lights need new wires. Oh, some random new parts would be nice. ;)
