Good call. I use a 75 ft-lb torque stick with my impact wrench, then follow up with 80 ft lb with my torque wrench. I do believe the factory spec is 70 ft-lb. It doesn't really matter much + or - 10; what's important is that you don't over-torque it with an air impact tool and damage/stretch the studs. Also, remember to re-torque after about 500 miles.
65 - 78, depending which manual you're reading, or which know-it-all on the internet you believe.

I have no air tools, :-( just a good old trusty $25 torque wrench from Sears.
I have the fancy alloy wheels, that came with the car from the factory, perharps steelies are more forgiving?
