where they are quoting the torque specs.
As for the length of lug bolts, they can be ordered in
longer sizes from many wheel places. Look around on
Ebay for wheel sellers.
Or Google for lug nuts.
I found a set longer on one of my cars. Not that
much longer, but a bit.
Seems to me you'd be better off telling them to stick
it up their butt and get your car back the way it was
and go elsewhere.
Where did you get the rims?
