Default Road Wheel Torque spec?

Guys,
Anybody know Saturn's torque spec for '01 S-series Aluminum road wheels?
Am rotating my wheels, checking my brakes etc and want to put back on the wheels with proper torque.
Many Thanks,
George

I'm not sure if it applies to your car, but my Haynes manual says to torque the wheel lug to 100 ft-lbs. My manual covers all S-Series models up to '99.

Break away torque when removing the wheels with a breaker bar felt about that high...why I asked. I have seen 5 bolt alloy wheels spec'ed as low at 75 ft-lbs so thought I would ask what the correct spec is. 100 ft-lbs may be right for a four bolt aluminum wheel. Can anybody confirm 100 ft-lbs is correct for an aluminum S-series wheel?
Many Thanks,
George

The Owner's Manual should also have published the Torque Spec for wheels.

Steel or Alloy wheels, it's always 103ft-lb on S-series.
