Is the lug nut torque the same on 19" as 18" wheels?

I saw a thread saying the wheel torque was 88 ft/lbs. for 18" rims - is that the same for 19"s? I'm getting my wheel locks delivered today.

Thanks..

I believe that torque values are based on the size and grade of the fasteners involved, wheel diameter should not matter.
