OK just changed first oil and rotate tires. Still not thrilled with jacking points, but basically drove different iterations of same GM v6 front drive car since 1991 and my wife has had a full frame SUV.

On to the real reason for post. Lug nut torque in owners manual page 507 is 130 lbs, I think that is just for the spare though. I am putting mine at 110 lbs based on posts here but looking for some confirmation.

It is a R/T with blacktop package, 20in black rims.

Appreciate all the help from this website, never thought I would have so many questions changing to Charger from Lumina, Bonnevile, Grand Prix, Regal. I do love the Charger though and it is worth it!

110 lbs/ft for OEM aluminum wheels and 140 lbs/ft for the police steelies.

You're right about the spare which is steel too they list that as 130.

Good practice to re-torque them after 100 miles or so (and every 1000 thereafter if you're really serious about it!)

If you haven't gone to aftermarket lug nuts I strongly suggest it, it might not happen this year or next but eventually the OEM ones will swell and you or your shop will be cursing. OEM ones are a two piece that eventually goes bad, especially in harsher climates.
