I set mine at 110. Manual says (110-120 ft/lbs or 140-150 ft/lbs for 9/16” stud)

I use 100 ft./lbs. on every vehicle I own or have ever owned. And I will only use an impact wrench to remove. That includes 3 TT's, Trucks, SUVs, Mustang racer, and NASCAR Modifieds with 10" Hoosier tires on steel 5 lug rims. Never a failure and never a warped rotor.

I don't torque any where near those figures. I think mine called for 90#, but at that setting it was pulling the threads on the studs and the nuts.

You might want to try another torque wrench. Discount Tire would only torque to 90. I take them to 110 with no problems.

I never use a torque wrench, just go by the feel. But after more years than I care to say you kinda have a system. On truck aluminum wheels I use a 1/2'' strong arm, same as the trailer aluminum wheels when I'm at home near the shop, and the boat is just a 1/2'' ratchet but those are just plain steel 12'' rims and less likely to ever get loose compared to an aluminum wheel. I'll tell you many years ago I had one heck of a time to get the tires loosened on the truck after a new tire install and there impact wrench with probably 150psi and fancy snap-on torques type sockets. So I at home with a strong arm and a 2 foot snipe broke there tightening job and retightened all my wheels at home. Anyways 2 weeks ago we encountered a flat out in the middle of no where and the trailer hooked on with a 50 mph wind pestering you. But with the chevy tire tools and jack provided changed to the spare without much fuss in about 20 minutes, but I sometime in the past also added a 18'' piece of tubing that extends my leverage for there provided wrench. That was just one of those times when planning ahead just incase, paid for itself so many times over in convenience from a 50 cent piece of pipe. I did have also another jack in the trailer with a complete set of tools that would have also changed the tire problem, but I'm just saying it's always a good practice to be prepared. Unless waiting 8 hours for assistance is convenient for ya out on a grid road where your lucky to see another car in 2 days.

Aceallenk, I cannot agree more, experience and feel are the best tools in every good mechanics toolbox. I don't want to warp the discs on my driven vehicles so I always torque them. That said, drum brakes as are usually what TT's have, they are much less susceptible to warping due to their 2 plane construction. But they can and will warp - especially during very hard braking that push heat/cool cycles past the design for a material's hardening/stress relief profile. Mountain driving, collision avoidance, and brake controller settings that exceed tow vehicle braking are very common factors attributed to warping failures.

You could be right.
I thought of that a few years back, so I took my torque wrench down to the local garage and we checked it out with one of the wrenches they had.

They both checked out the same. So I figured that blew that theory.
But, who knows, maybe something has changed since then.
