    Good day all. I just installed winter wheels and tires on my new 2021 Forester. The car has the OEM rims but the winter rims I installed are steel. Manufacturers specs call for 120 NM of torque for OEM wheels. Should it be the same for the steel rims? 120 NM is only 88.5 foot pounds. This has been the lowest lugnut torque value I have ever used for any car, truck or SUV I have owned. I don’t want to lose a rim so I’m just checking for some input. Thanks in advance.
