Question Lug Nut Torquing?

Ok, very simple question. Anyone have an idea what the tire dealers torque the lug nuts down to? I want to remove the tires and clean them up, but want to put them back on proper, not just tight as I can.

Thanks for the fast reply. I was thinking 90 fl/lbs but I didn't want to SNAP one off and sit there cussing myself out for being stupid not to ask someone.

Once again-
a quick search for "lug nut torque" would have found this
http://www.tacomaterritory.com/forum...lug+nut+torque

Its also in the FAQ
http://www.tacomaterritory.com/wiki/...Specifications

Yes it took me more time to search and post the links even though I could have easily dropped the answer-

Sorry, I just returned to the boards yesterday. I'm still kind of rusty on the proper sequence of steps before posting.

The proper way to torque the lug nuts is what is known as a star pattern. See below:

You also need to apply the torque in several stages. Like, torque all the nuts 50, 60, 70, and finally 83 ft-lb.
