MC wheel lug torque specs?

Hi guys,

I have a 2012/2013 (really not sure) Mini Cooper Classic (Knightsbridge) with stock 16" wheels and I'm changing them to 15" for snow tires (on steel rims with stock lug nuts)

I am wondering what's the proper torque spec to the lugs? Since I'm going to DIY I want to make sure I torque to proper settings so I don't put myself in danger on the road, nor do I want to break the studs.

I've searched around and found posts that say 85, 103 etc. So no definite answer. Hopefully I can get all the MC guys here to chime in and lend me some knowledge.

Thanks

for a first gen mini they are meant to be 110nm or 81lbft
so depending on your units those numbers could be about right
103ftlb would probably be too much
