I have never torqued mine down to spec. I use an air impact wrench and go NASCAR on them lug nuts and they have never come loose.
Of course the real danger is stripping them but I do have the air set to only 90 psi not 120 psi to keep that from happening.
You could always use blue locktite to keep them tight. Good Luck Buddy!
