New rollers don't spin freely?

I just bought a new BMW deflection roller, and a new belt tensioner for my 2002 330Ci. I noticed that the roller wheels do not spin freely; they are actually pretty tight. Is this normal? The current ones on the car spin like a top, so I assume that they will free up after installation? I am replacing my current ones due to noise from at least one of them currently.

Also, does anyone know the torque specs for attaching these? I can't find any reference in the Bentley manual.
