Default Torque Specs

Where can I find the torque specs for the tire lug nuts on my 12 3.7 convertible?

I have a very slow leak in the drivers side rear tire. I don't want the shop to use the air wrench, but to tighten the lug nuts to specs by hand. This is so I don't wind up with a warped rotor.

Thanks

I believe 85 to 105 ft-lbs. is the spec.

I torque mine to 95-100 and always re-torque/check a few days later.

100 ft-lbs, in your owners manual, page 246.

Never seen that. I typically torque at 87-95 ft/lbs.
