Default correct torque settings?

Just wondering what a correct torque setting[lbs] is correct for our cars. TO be more specific, im running the sti bbs wheels on an 07 wrx with tires. Is 90 lbs overkill?

Um, yes.

66 lb/ft is the correct setting.

90 is high, but won't do any damage. You're fine. I usually put them at 70 with my snap-on torque wrench.

70lbs is the general Subaru setting for all wheels. The only problem with over-torque is the "possibility" of cross threading the studs or damaging the lug ends.

70 lb/ft is acceptable.

By overtorquing you risk the possibility of effectively stretching the studs and having them shear on you.

I had this happen on another car of mine. Not fun, but luckily it happened while torquing the nuts and not while driving the car.
