I use a rigid 1/4 impact gun for removal and snugging the nuts, torque wrench to finish them at 20 ft/lbs or 240″ /lbs. ¬†350″ lbs is too much for an 8mm 1.25 stud. Over tightening can crush an aluminum rim or lead to the nut jamming on the stud, ¬†causing it to remove the entire stud out upon removal or worse yet have it snap off when applying enough torque to break it free.
