Just curious if this applies to CTS-Vs

http://www.autoblog.com/2013/05/23/cadillac-to-recall-20-000-srx-models-over-wheels-that-could-fall/

Don't most of us have the same lug nuts? My '13 came with them from factory....maybe the Cadillac representative can help us out with this...

I got some of the new blueish lugnuts. IMO so long as your check them periodically there is no issue. I change my wheels so regularly not a month or two goes by that I am not re-torquing the lugnuts. Also on the V the spec is 150ftlbs but I believe it is much lower (110?) on the SRX.

Owner's manual on my V says the lugs should be 140 ft-lbs. I'm surprised it's so high actually.

They upped it to 150 with the wheel clicking tsb a year or two ago. I just run at that all the time.
