Thanks much. What would happen if the lugs are slighly over torqued? It seems that the lugs are way over 90 lbs ft. at the factory. I almost broke my back trying to undo the lugs. thanks for the quick reply.

....'slightly' probabally not much. But if you wanted to play it safe you can get new ones. Over tightening can stretch and weaken the bolts to the point where they can potentially snap.

No one wanted to bring up the fact that our cars do not have lug nuts?!?!?! Just joking...but really, they have lug bolts.
