Default Wheel nut/bolt torque figure

Hi all as it says in the title, can someone give me the wheel nut/bolt torque figure for the 207. I canít find it anywhere in owners manuals etc all I find is online sites giving anything from 90-100nm figures.
I have 16 inch alloys on mine.

Thanks in advance.

Tight enough so that when stuck on the side of the road with a puncture, the wheel brace you have will undo the bolts.
I always do them up with the same size brace as tight as I can by hand. Never had a problem yet.

I have been in the situation of not being able to undo a nut/bolt because the idiot tyre fitter has whacked them up far too much. I now retighten every bolt after any tyre change and when getting a new (to me) car.
I always put a dab of coppaslip on the threads too.

My reply would always be "reassuringly tight". As said before, you still need to be able to change a tyre with the tools you have to hand by the roadside.

I experimented to get the "feel" for how tight is tight enough. Expect to have to put your whole weight on the wheelbrace to undo a bolt and it should move with ease. Tighten them enough to achieve that.

A smear of copper grease on the threads (no more!) and on the mating surfaces between the bolt and the wheel will keep the torque consistent.

I`ve been in the garage business all my life and always use a torque wrench (90nm for a 207) unfortunately most tyre fitters cant be bothered.
A further tip when fitting alley wheels,as well as a smear of copper slip on the threads,smear some on the hub as well.
Ally wheels can get stuck on the hub flange.I`ve had countless instances where you have to use a copper mallet to free the wheel.
Not a nice situation when your changing a wheel in the rain at night on the hard shoulder.

I also still use copper grease. Thought I was the only one left!

Thanks for the input folks, I also use copper grease as suggested, I found most websites etc were stating the 100nm figure so have used that as my basis. Just doesnít feel tight as it can still be took off without a huge force in my opinion.
But this is the first time I have tightened wheels to a torque figure, so I could have just been one of those people that used to hang my body weight on a wrench to ensure tightness in the past.

i have driven cars with loose wheel nuts, you do get warning as the car shakes like mad before the wheel lets go.
But guess some people would just continue on thinking 'this doesnt feel right'
