[b]according to the hmaservice web site the proper lug nut torque for the 06 sonata is between 90-110 lb/ft.

[b]I set my torque wrench to 85. Oh yea, if your lugs look a bit rusty, DO NOT clean them with an oil-based lubricant, or your nuts will go flying off after about 25 miles. (Been there, done that.)

[b]1) Is it better/advised to tighten the bolts while the wheel is off the ground or on the groud?
2) Is the bolt torque a function of the wheel or the car (i.e. the bolt)?* Reason I ask is because when spring time comes around and I have to put back on my summer tires, which are on custom rims... so what torque do I have tighten those to?

[b]1) Personally, I get them "90% tight" with a cross-bar wrench while the wheels are off the ground, then lower the car and use a torque wrenct to get to final torque.
2) It has to do more with the studs on the car, not really the wheel.* You want the stud to stretch a specific amount.* Too much torque stretches he stud too much and applies too much force to the rotor.
