Wheel spacer question

I am currently putting them on my rear wheels and the notice says "for 8 lug, torque to 130ft lbs."
I don't have 8 and was curious as to what the torque is. I was gonna follow the instructions and re torque after 10 miles and 100.

Any help?

I'd torque them to at least 100lbs.

Ok, I torqued them to 120 and took it for a ride. I can see in my mirrors that they look like they are not running true but there is no bouncyness.

Ok, turns out the factory studs were too long and I used a cut off wheel to shorten them an 1/8th of an inch. All is ok now. I torqued them down and will recheck them in a few days to see if they are still good.

Pics up in the next day or two.

Xmas gift. Just for the rear. They are lug centric since I am using stock rims.

I dunno why they are so big. On a plus side, I figured out the photobucket app for posting pics.

Part of me likes them and part feels they could be a half inch smaller. I wanna say it feels more stable going through turns.
