I have always torqued my lug nuts to 115 foot pounds.

My owners manual says 110 to 120. I set mine to 115.

I asked a technician at Jackson Center Service who does much of the wheel, brake and bearing work what they torque them to, while there last month. He said 110 for 15" alloy wheels and 120 for 16" alloy wheels.

My manual states 110 for the stock 15" alloy wheels. Check your manual if you have one.

The technician is incorrect, the torque is 110. There was a lengthy discussion about this here a couple of months ago.
