Lug nut torque specs

I know this was on here before, but I couldn't find anything in the search. What do you guys torque your wheel lugs to? I need to rotate my tires, and want to know what to torque the lugs to.

When ever I have new tires put on, I always loosen and retorque all lug nuts in my garage.

The stock tire tools will not loosen a nut that some a##hole has tightened down to 300 lb.
