I am picky about rotations & then checking the lug torque myself.
I also set to 100 ft-lbs.

Not only after rotations, but anytime before a road trip, I feel safer knowing the lugs are tight at the right specs.

I work at Walmart, and we use torque sticks, but we always go around after with the torque wrench to make sure they're at the proper torque. Most modern GMs are 100ft-lbs, minus the full-size trucks, SUVs and crossovers..and the aveo for a few years.

They actually train us well here, and everything is double checked before the car leaves the garage. Drain plug, filter, oil cap, and anything else that was touched during an oil change, and lug nuts when the tires came off. I've heard a few horror stories from walmarts elsewhere where laziness has taken over. To be honest, I treat people'* cars as I would expect my own to be treated.

i always run em snug with my impact and then check em with tq wrench..especially on the truck 24 lug nuts ugh lol..Sad part is IF any shop touches my vehicles..pretty much tires only i sit and watch them...usually outside...on the curb..smoking cigarettes..making comments lmfao..one day i had my old 2000 sierra and 05 GP in at the same time for new tires..that was stressful to have to watch two of them. My old 93 (Bubba as some of you may know it by) i took to walmart for an oil change..glad i stood and watched them as the truck had a B&M spin on remote filter on the inner fender well for the trans and they started to reach for it untill i hollerd at them lmfao
