Default Lug Nut Torque Spec

Ok, I've searched my manuel, the "internet" and this forum.....

Does anyone know the torque spec for the lug nuts on an '08 Forester with steel rims???? It has 5 lugs, if that helps.

Thanks.

I always set my torque wrench to 67 ft-lbs. It has worked fine for 2+ years.
