Proper torque pressure for lug nuts

I just rotated my tires today.

I searched my OM and the forum and I could not find anywhere about what the correct pressure I should set my torque wrench for when tightening my lug nuts. I set it for 110 lbs. Is that too much/too little?

Thanks! Guess I'll have to loosen those up. I can't believe I didn't find it in the FAQ. I was looking everywhere for it before I posted.

Would it hurt for me to leave them where they are at for now and then just change the torque the next time I rotate them, or should I change the torque ASAP?

Also mentioned in the owners manual, along with other everyday torque numbers such as the oil drain plug.

You can leave them. You didn't over torque by that much. I imagine you will be just fine until next time.

Better to have a bit to much, vs. seeing your wheel and tire roll by as you grind to a halt.

I would retorque them before your rotors get warped prematurely. You don't even have to jack up the car as long as you do one lug at a time.

Wow!

When I rotated the tires, I also checked the tire pressure. They were grossly under-inflated, of course. I put all four up to 32 lbs. and now it feels like my car doesn't have to work as hard because there is less drag. I can't wait to see my gas mileage on my next tank of gas.
