So I just bought a set of muteki spline lug nuts, these are steel nuts, but the packaging reads suggested torque of 75-85lbs, however i've read that people go 100-110 depending on street vs track.

is it safe to tighten to 100lbs?

These aren't sr48 or sr35, though... They are slim spline-drive "tuner" nuts. I got exact same set for my TSW Nurburgring rear drag setup, wondering about their torque rating as well.

I have the same lugs, the Muteki shorts. I torque mine at 95 and check them weekly. They're perfect.

Steel is stronger than aluminum. I would not torque aluminum lug nuts beyond recommended specs. If you track, steel lugs would be safer.

These lug nuts are steel. No idea why tq rating on their package is this low, as if they were aluminum.
