Follow owners manual, best advice I think anyone can give. Realistically, the lug should be compatible with your car - so I'd tighten to the specs as if it were a factory lug. I have the Gorilla's, as do many others on this site, and I asked the same question - everyone gave the same answer...follow your manual. If you're still feeling unsure, doesn't hurt to drop by a dealer and ask them.

My 2013 manual only shows one torque spec, 110 lb-ft. Doesn't list with or without RT2. I have a supplement for my manual for the summer tires but it does not call out a separate torque spec for the ZL1 wheels

What you can do is this: Torque them to 110ft-lbs (or whatever your manual lists.) Then drive a round a bit. Then come back and tighten them again making sure they are all torqued properly. That is what I do and it seems to work out pretty well. I remember someone on here had one fall off... OH and buy a quality torque wrench and socket.

I'm guessing if you ever have them put on at a shop it will be hammered on with an impact wrench.

Hmmmmm - I vaguely remember that post with the lug that fell off. Did the picture look similar to the one below?
