Hey guys what torque do you use on you lugnuts when running billet wheels? The reason I ask this is because torque specs are 70 lbs. in my service manual but it sure seems not crazy tight when I use the torque wrench? Just wanted to see if you all run the same spec or something different. Please keep in my this is with billet wheels not a cast wheel. NBS
Thanks for the input!

Oops found an old thread looks like guys are running anywhere from 95-110 !! Yikes I better re-torque before I am skating on my rotors!

Yeah I run 100 on mine and check the torque after a couple of days. 70 seems really low.

the chevy 14x1.5 mm stud torque is 140ft lbs. only the older pre 95 trucks ran a little bit lower at 120ft lbs. better retorque your lugs my friend. the type of wheel doesn't make a different in torque. its the stud that makes the difference.
