Default Lug Torque Spec '10 WRX?

I searched around and did not find exactly what I was looking for. What is the recommended torque spec for the wheel lug nuts on a '10 WRX? I have new tires going on today and would prefer to have them torqued instead of tightened with the impact gun. Thanks.

Check your owner's manual. The 08-09 Impreza Manuals say 58-72 lbf-ft torque. I can't imagine it would change for the 2010 models.

I'm just going to have them torqued to 75.

It's 60. That's the Torque stick I use..
Makes me paranoid because most cars are 80-100.. But still..

Same here. There is some variance either way percentage wise when it comes to torque wrenches.

Yeah, on my old WRX's I always torqued to about 75lb-ft. To me, 60lb-ft seems a bit low for my tastes.

you'll be fine with 75. Lots of people actually follow the recommendations and they're fine. I personally just don't feel comfy without 80 so thats what mine are at.
