Wheel Torque specs (8th gen)

I have a 2008 Accord EX-L with 17 inch alluminum wheels, Can anybody tell me what Honda recomends to torque the lug nuts to when rotating the wheels?

Not sure what Honda recommends off top of my head, but typically mag wheels are torqued to around 80 ft-lb, you should be safe with numbers around that range, and be consistent to even out the loading across all 5 lugs.

On 7th gen, it is 80lb-ft.

I've torqued the nuts on almost all my cars to that value and never had a problem!

It's in the owner's manual and it is indeed 80 ft-lbs for Gen 7 (and I think 5 and 6 as well).

One nifty feature of Sven, our 93 Volvo, is that the spindle nut cover is imprinted with "63 ft-lbs"

Those wacky Swedes. . . .

The torque spec for the 8th gen is 80-ft/lb, I'm pretty sure it's under the "replacing/changing tire" section, whichever that one is, I know I found it in there somewhere.
