Here's a snap shot of the Wheel Lug Nut Torque Chart from the 2015 Eagle Manual. It's some what of an eye chart.
It's displayed on page 4-7 of the manual.

It states for 12" & 13" rims - 50 - 75 ft/lbs
for 14" - 16" rims - 90 - 120 ft/lbs

Same values for steel, chrome or aluminum.

I typically set my torque wrench between 95 - 115 ft/lbs for my 6-lug 16" rims.

Hope this helps.

Only needs to be done in 3 stages if the wheel was completely removed,if your just snugging up to check torque 1 time is enough and obviously check before each trip
