I use 100 foot pounds. Easy to remember and within the spec range. Plus or minus 5 pounds is not gonna be critical. We're talking lug nuts here, not some delicate, super-critical component.
Anywhere in the range is good, as long as they're torqued evenly.

Nope. If that was the case, a rear wheel drive car would have different torque numbers for the front and rear wheels.
