BMW Lug Wrench

The BMW lug wrench that comes with the jack kit is supposed to tighten the lug nuts to 130Nm. Using a torque conversion calculator, that comes out to be a little less than 96 Lb-Ft. It's been a general consensus on this forum that the lug nuts be tightened to 88 Lb-Ft.

Which is correct or is there no practical difference?

There is a recommended range of 120 nm + or - 10 nm, which works out to 81 to 96 Lb-Ft.
