Lug Nut Torque specs

Not sure if this is the right place feel free to move this Lee Lee. (but I know you would anyway, lol.) Just a little FYI, I have been having problems with breaking my lug key for tuner wheels that I have on my 07. So I guess I am going to have to resort to a torque wrench before I break down and buy me set of wheels just to make sure it is not all me. Here are some specs for future reference it needed.

In my owners manual, it suggest 100lbs. I try to go about 102 and they still break loose pretty easy when I take the wheels off. A tire store put some lugs on so tight one time, I destroyed the locking lug and key trying to get them off. The lugs had to be hammered off and on the other extreme, I have failed at one time to tighten them enough and almost met with disaster.

Thanks for the info 89HOSS appreciate it!

Anytime not really one of the tech guys on here or any thing that is just a question I had asked Lee the other day and got kind of curious myself. Also wondering if I was over torquing due to I don't mind putting a little elbow in if you know what I mean, lol.
