122-140,but that depends on your lugs. I just bought a set of Gorilla lugs from Apex,not sure what they are to be set at,but we'll know soon.The reason i say 122 is that's what i was told for my 1LE,and the 140 was for the standard 5 spoke set up,but apparently it's the color of your lug's.

Owners manual claims 110. I'm probably wrong but 140 seems way high for a lug torque.

Get a breaker bar put a 8' piece of steel tube on it and crank until you can't crank no more. J/K my dealer said 120ft lb

go with your Owner Manual.
GM changed lugnuts in 2012, which changed the torque spec

True Dat! My owners manual is a for a 2014 - previous models may have other information.

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?
