Torque on lugs

I know this is a basic question but is the torque on the lugnuts really 110 ftlbs? Seems pretty tight but guess it needs it to keep the wheels on.

Re: Torque on lugs

I torque my regular lugnuts to 85ftlbs then my welds are set at 95lbs.

That is what I was going to torque to but did 95. Taking them off sure didn't feel like 110. I'll probably will back off and reset. I usually do after 500 miles anyway after rotation.
