Lug Nut Torque?

I can't seem to find anywhere on this site, the internet or the owners manual the required torque setting when tightening lug nuts on a 2010 Jeep Liberty with the OEM 17" Wheels. What is the required torque when tightening the lug nuts? TIA

...just found it after doing a word search in the manual. It is 95 ft/lbs.

Standard Chrysler lugnut torque for there vehicles using 1/2-20 lugnuts is 85-115lbs-ft or torque.

I'm rotating the wheels. Owners manual says 95ft/lb, but it doesn't specify steel or aluminum. From what I've read they are supposed to be torqued differently. What is the correct torque for aluminum on my 2011? Does the pattern matter?

Its always a criss cross pattern for all wheels. I think all oem wheels that came with the KK are aluminum alloy, so 95 ftlbs is probably fine.

Recheck torque after driven 50=100 miles on all aluminum wheels. If you like to be extra safe check again around 500 miles.

If they only came with aluminum then it makes sense they would give only the 95ft/lb spec. Thanks
