i had a dealer up here mount and balance a new rear tire for me this summer. I switch to snows myself and use the prescribed 88 ft-lbs. When i went to put my snows on a few weeks ago the lugs on that rear wheel were WAY over-torqued. I'm a pretty muscular guy (5'8" ~200 lbs) and I had to practically STAND on my breaker bar to loosen them. In fact, I had to put the handle of my racing jack over the handle of the bar to get more leverage! so much for calibration of impact wrenches lol
