Patriot Lug Nut Torque
What is the specified torque for the lug nuts on a 2012 Patriot with steel wheels?

Same for both the aluminum and steel wheels: 100 ft. lbs. (135 Nm)

2010 Patriot.........Anybody having issues with the lug nuts seizing on....I just changed to my winter tires and just about all 20 lug nuts were so friggin tight I needed a pry bar on my tire wrench to get them off. And my tires have only been on since April.

What are professional's thoughts about anti-seize or molylube on the stud threads? I routinely cheque the torque of the lugnuts whenever I check tire pressure, and I have had no instances of loosening lugnut torque as a result of the thread dressing.
