Great Thanks for the info. I was not sure the lug nut size and the info I had on torque was 72lbs. Wanted to see what others are doing.

Thanks again.

17MM and 100NM which I think is about 82 Lbs.

Not trying to pic nits, but I was curious what the conversion was from Nm to lb-ft.

Looks like it is 1Nm = .737561 lb-ft

So that's approximately 74 lb-ft of torque for the lug nuts.

Here is a website with some conversions.
