I have a set of stans crest ztr and use bolt on skewers to stiffen it up.

I can fell the dif. when i dont give them a good snug. But i dont want to over tighten them.

So long as your wheel still rolls smoothly (doesn't roll, then stop suddenly) they're OK. I'd suggest adjusting your wheel bearing preload on the bike with the skewers tightened down.

I've got a Shimano Saint M810. The Shimano spec is 35 - 45 N·m {305 - 392 in.lbs} I have a long 6mm. Allan wrench and it feels like it is going to bend when I tighten the bolt. Even then the nut is nowhere near the specified torque.

Depends on the skewer

I had two sets of Delta Axle Rodz, and they would strip if I looked at them funny. They had very loose tolerances between the threaded alu nut on the end and the steel bolt. THe nut on the end would tap dance in the threads a bit, it was so bad.

Avoid those.
