Welcome to the forum. Lugnuts are across the board torqued to 70lb-ft cross patterned to go equally.

And that should probably be dry. No oil, antiseize or other lubricant allowed.

Check your owners manual. Directions for changing a tire are on p328. Safe vehicle jacking and support practices are a must. It looks like 100 ft/lbs (135 N/m) final torque.

No wonder there are always complaints of warped rotors and the likes. I have been known for breaking the occasional bolt of various sizes, really surprised the torque is that high, can just see my wife or daughter changing a tire and tightening the lug nuts to 100lb-ft, not really a viable torque with the handle they supply, but sure bet it wouldn't come off.

Back in the "oil lightly" days it was 60-65 ft lbs. Same lugs dry (since about 1980) are 90-100.
