Question Torque specs for lug nuts

I just put on some wheel spacers from AM and I was curious what torque to use on the lug nuts. I set my torque wrench to 100 ft lbs. Is that good or do I need to tighten them more? I really don't want to worry about my wheels falling off. Anybody have any idea?

Cool. Thanks guys. Also for the record, the wheel spacers do make the rear look 100% better. I wish I just would have bought the wider wheels to begin with but too late now.

you know if you are really paranoid, after a while you should go back and re tighten the nuts.
