Straight from the 2011 owner's manual:

9. Finish tightening the lug nuts. Push down on the
wrench while tightening for increased leverage. Alternate
nuts until each nut has been tightened twice. The correct
wheel nut tightness is 95 ft lbs (130 N·m). If in doubt
about the correct tightness, have them checked with a
torque wrench by your authorized dealer or at a service
station.

FYI - the 2008 FSM says the lug nuts should be torqued to 92-132 ft.lbs. I go with 100 as it's easy to see on my torque wrench. I also re-torque after driving 50 miles.

95- 100 ftlbs and retorque after about 150-200 kms. (not sure what that is in miles but that is what we go by at are shop).
