I torque mine to 110, run it and torque again while hot.

I used a very sparing amount of anti seize compound. Once you put it on there and wipe all excess off, you never have to do it again... or at least i haven't.

Been running fifteen years and nuts come off with the lug wrench under the seat. Haven't lost a wheel yet... and the brake rotors don't warp.

Don't lube them, you're applying a huge amount more tension to that stud than torquing dry.

Thanks for all the replies, I need to figure out why the rotor/pads are getting hot.

I work at a busy tire shop. We torque all wheels to factory specs.
In a nut shell, if it's a domestic make(GM, Ford, Mopar) it is 100ft/lbs.
If it's an import, it's 80ft/lbs
There are a few exceptions, like Newer Mopar trucks & GM trucks & new Tundras that take 120ft/lbs
There are a few older Volvos that take 65ft/lbs.

All Jeeps: 100ft/lbs. NOTHING on threads. PERIOD!
If it was supposed to have never seize or grease on it they would put it on from the factory, which they don't do.

there are some trucks that spec 140+ft/lbs

usually the 3/4ton and higher but even some 1/2ton

i personally hate when one comes in... almost always at least one lug nut that wants to be a pain in the *** and we have even had 2 sockets crack on a couple GMCs

Anti seize reduces required fastener torque by roughly 25%.

Yes^ and if you live in the salt belt, you better ant-seize anything you plan to be able to remove ever again.
