Torque Spec on Lug Nuts

I got rid of my 2 piece rims for 1 piece with tubeless tires back in June. The guy at the shop told me to come back in after a few hundred miles to re-torque the lug nuts.

Well, I can never make it there during his hours, so I was going to have a friend with a trucking business do it for me, but I have no clue what the lugs should be torqued to.

Any ideas? I have a 1987 International S1853 with Wayne Lifeguard body. Dayton 11R22.5 Wheels.

Thanks!

I have a 1974 bluebird with disc wheels that I just changed over too. The shop torqued my wheels @ 200 ft-lb but the Chevrolet service manual states 500 to 600 ft-lb.

That is some serious torque! I was thinking, if the money becomes available, of changing over to aluminum wheels for looks, mileage, weight.

I purchased steel wheels because aluminum would have been totally custom.
