So it's about time for me to rotate the tires (what's left of 'em ;)) and me being anal retentive and all would like to torque down the lug nuts on my '03 Cobra. Would anyone happen to know the correct number (ft. lbs.)? Thanks in advance!

Around 109 ft lbs is what we do for track days. :D

actual torque spec is 100 lb. ft.

I had called SVT about 6 weeks ago when I rotated my tires and the guy on the phone said 95 ft lbs.

I find this interesting. When I get my lugs check for a track event they usally use 90 fl.lb.. I have been to an event that used 85 ft. lbs. I had ask the question of a more knowledgeable person than me and his reply was that whether you torque at 85 or 105 the most important thing is that the lugs are all torqued the same to help prevent warpage.:)

beerkat~ I agree with that logic. I will definitely torque all the lug nuts the same amount.
