Tires/lug nuts

I'm posting this because I searched and couldn't verify.

wife's 2011 535xi GT, sport package, 19 inch rims.

Last fall I took the snow tires from our old E66 7 series (18" I think), and they fit perfectly. The snow tires came with their own aftermarket rims and lug nuts, which fit perfectly.

Today I took them off and put the regular summer tires back on. I couldn't find the lug nut torque spec -- it was either 88 or 103 lb ft. Apparently the M12 lug nuts require 88; the M14 require 103. (how do you tell? I have no idea. the threads are apparently different, so I guess I got lucky using the old tires/rims from the 7. From what I found, it seems the lugs nuts would not screw in right on an E90/E60.)

I emailed my SA, and he confirmed 96-103 lb.ft. thought I'd post this in case anyone needs this info. Thanks! Kash
