Torque On Lug Nuts?

Does anyone know how much torque should be applied to the front lug nuts? I replaced my front rotors about two months ago & they have warped already. I did not use a torque wrench when I installed the wheels & I have been accused of being a gorilla with a wrench

I probably made a mistake as well when I bought cheap Autozone rotors, I won't make that mistake again.

i usually do the standard 100 ft.lbs. the most important factor is even torque on all lugs.

When in doubt, gas it. It will either fix the problem, or at the very least end the suspense. (Ironically this motto had nothing to do with this)

The specs are anywhere from 87 ftlbs to 110 ftlbs... I used to work at discount and thats the torque chart we would go by .. so we do all at 110 ftlbs :biggthump but 100 is just fine

I used to torque my at 80 but when I put new rotors on It squealed when I turned left and they always came lose. I then went to 100 the lose problem went away and the squealing reduced. I then went to 120 and everything has been perfect since.
