Lug nut torque spec?

I just rotated my tires again over the weekend and torqued to 100ft/lbs. That's just what I always have done. Does anyone know the correct torque specification?

Yup, and like what's been posted here about it, when i did my first rotation/torque wrench(and not just what i felt was "tight" with a impact) whatever slight pulse i had from the rotors prior to me doing the rotation, went away completely
So proper lug nut torque is very important for a lotta reasons

And thats with Clean and Dry threads.
Don't oil or lube the threads or you will over tension the studs

Also important is to torque the lug nuts in a star pattern - gradually. 100 ft. lbs. is not an enormous amount of torque. If you are physically strong you can easily over-torque the lug nuts on the first pass.

Yup to all the extra info here

FYI/FWIW: I picked up a new torque wrench from Sears(clicker type w/ case for around $70) this morning, almost can't wait to rotate and do the "hard to reach when just standard washing the car, so i clean/wax the wheels when i rotate 'em" thing soon. I'm due in prob another 1K .

Also a good time to really clean the fenderwells and check around for things w/ the wheels off .

Not to hijack the thread here, but does anyone here have a thumbs up on some good locking lugnuts?
I feel that i'm tempting the badguys with not having at least a special key type lug on each wheel, and figure the best time to put them on is during a rotation.
