Believe the factory torque specification for wheel lugnuts is 125 ft-lb. One time the guy at a tire changing place stripped a lugnut on a wheel, didn't say a mumbling word and it was months later when the tires needed to be balanced and rotated before it was discovered. Have seen tire shops on other customer's cars hit every lugnut three times even after the socket releases and starts making that jack hammer sound. Generally speaking, once any work is performed requiring the removal of a wheel will go home and re-torque each lugnut to around 75 ft-lb. Grant it, don't drive nearly as fast as I used to and 75 ft-lb might be a little too low for many. Also, the lugnuts are supposed to be tightened in a diagonal pattern versus the typical clockwise or counter-clockwise rotation. You'll just have to find a place with a powerful enough tool to remove the lugnuts and may want to try some penetrating lubricant if indeed they have rusted on or seized over a period of time.
