So I would think that the owner's manual would say what the Lug Nut Torque Spec is for my car but apparently its invisible to me.

I just installed some red caliper covers and all my searching could lead me to people saying 80-100. I torqued them to 90.

I have a 2012 GT premium with the standard 18 ince wheels. Anyone know where the exact information is listed? Maybe a link online or a page number in this stupid manual?

Maybe the heat just has me worn out lol.

Since we're talking torque specs does anybody know the factory torque specs for the 5.0 oil drain plug ?

19 lb-ft from the factory service manual SECTION 303-01B [Engine - 5.0L (4V)], which can be found here:
