Torque specs for wheel lugs?

I looked through the manual and could not find specs for recommended torque at the wheel lugs. I guess they don't want you to change your own wheels??? Or, did I just miss it? A BMW CCA instructor at the track said I should go for 90 ft x lbs. I checked the current setup with a torque wrench, and they seem to be at around 75 ft x lbs all around. Any opinions on this?

Thanks Carlos. Did you run your first batch of VS8s for the E9X M3? I don't see any pics on your website.
