Does anyone know what the lug nut Torque specifications are on the SE-R's? I don't mean to sound stupid or anything , but I'm just concerned. Whenever I want to take my wheel off, I have to get a brake-over bar. I do use ANTI-Seizing comound. PLEASE HELP!

I set my lugs at 80 footpounds thats what 99% of shops set your lugs at.

According to my 95-98 B14 Haynes manual it's 87 ft-lbs which still feels pretty light to me considering this was my first 4 lug non-GM car. My previous cars I always tightened them down as hard as I could cuz that's how my daddy told me to do it

I have always done mine to 80. I'm now paranoid my wheel is going to fall off cause of a little shop error a while back. (My wheel almost fell off, they didn't torque them at all)

My pa told me to tighten them by hand when the car is up on the stands then lower it then tighten a little more on the ground, never had a problem never had a torque wrench either.

Thanks for your help guys...I think around 80 is good...I think I was making them too tight...they were always hard to get off...
