110 is around the right setting I go by. Don't just torque and never check them again.
Check your wheels before, and during every trip as you check your air pressure.
Don't over torque because every tire you put on, down the road you will need to take it off....

Depends on stud size and whether steel or alum wheels.

Attached chart is for alum wheels.

100 does it for me. It took a couple thousand miles before they completely locked in place.

and....
If you happen to have a Harbor Freight nearby, they sell Torque Wrenches at a VERY reasonable price (Like under $20 reasonable price!)

Rim size makes no difference, it is the stud size that determines the torque. Better to go half way between min and max. If I were using the cheap torque wrenches from HF or NT, I would go to the max listed. I have a calibrated Williams, so I go to the center, which is 110lb/ft for 1/2" studs.

It looks to be 1/2, I used a 3/4 deep socket on the lug nuts, does that help?

Not really, take a 7/16" socket and see if it will fit over the stud, if not, try a 1/2" socket. If the 1/2" fits over the stud, then you have 1/2" studs and torque them to 110 lb/ft.
