Default How much tension on wheel nuts on D40

Just a general concensus on this one.
What is the correct ft/lb of torque to be applied to the wheel nuts on a D40 STX (alloy wheels)?
It is better to say nothing and be thought a fool, than to open one's mouth (or hit the send key) and remove all doubt.

Between 98 and 127Nm. 100-120Nm sounds easier to remember and still fits the requirement!

Oh, wait ... ft/lb ... I only have 2 feet, and if I pound the wheel nuts with both feet ... yeah. Sorta between 73 and 93 ft/lbs :-)

Don't worry, I give the salespeople at Harvey Norman a hell of a time, refusing to buy their 65 inch television because Australia went metric back in the 70s and I don't want old stock, I want a brand new TV with warranty. It's so much fun, especially with a salesperson who has grown up only knowing a metric world!
