Default Torque for Saturn aluminum rims?

I just switched out my steelies for stock aluminum Saturn rims made by Enkei.

I generally torque my lug nuts to 103 foot pounds, per the manual.

Now whenever I remove a lug nut, slivers of aluminum fall out. So I wonder if the torque spec for the aluminum rims is different?

What is the proper torque spec when using Saturn aluminum rims?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Should have gotten new lug nuts too, steel rim lug nuts have a different beveled area from the aluminum wheels and nearly every steel rim lug nut I've looked at was 100% ruined anyway.

I didn't think of that.... I grabbed a steel fullsize to use as a spare. I did grab the lug nuts too, but I don't think they're in the car. I just took them instead of leaving them on the ground, or in the salvage yard car.
