Default 2007 VUE New Tires

I had to be very careful where I took my '99 SW2 for tire replacement
because some tire dealers used too much torque on the wheel nuts and
could damage the brake disks.

Do the '07 VUEs have the same problem?

Thanks in advance,
Howard

The pertinent question---although you may not get a straight answer---is "Do
you use a torque wrench, or do you feel that you simply know from experience
how torqued is "enough"?"

Every time I've heard of mechanics being randomly tested on "I just know",
regardless of their level of experience, they've actually overtorqued pretty
universally.
