Over torqueing the lugs leads to warped rotors according to the instructors at uti. Not that I put a lot of belief in that but it does make sense to me so I torque my lug nuts myself unless the dealer has to remove the wheels for something. My last two jobs required a torque wrench on all lug nuts so it became a habit.

As for the torque spec I do find it interesting that military HMMWV's are torqued to 125ftlbs and our trucks are torqued to 130ish.
