The early (magnesium) wheels were directional. This means that all four wheels are different. In the later set up, there is only a (width) difference between the front wheels and the back wheels.

However, there have been discussions on how the directional wheels need to be mounted. I'm of the opinion that the leading edge needs to go forward, but many cars had them mounted with the trailing edge forward.

Even though the wheels are no more directional, the central lugnuts still are. The do-undo caps are different between the left and right side of the car. Following a racecar safety set up, where the lugnuts are tightening during forward motion.

And, most impprtantly, never take your lugnuts off while the do-undo caps are still in place (like me)

First take the wheelcap off, and then bring out the big torque wrench (or breaker bar). 408LB/FT of torque to tighten the nut, a multiple of that to loosen it. Always use anti-seize, or you will never get the nut off again....

Make sure you only use the metal airvalve, and not the ones with the rubber stam and the metal cap..

It absolutely is. I am a great fan of standing pedals. But the design of the Spyker pedal box is amazing.
