wheel spacer torque spec

So after reading some wheel spacer info, it states to torque the spacers to 100 ft/lbs, then torque the wheels to 100 ft/lbs as well. oem torque settings according to my manual state that the wheel lugs should be torqued to 83 ft lbs.

is 100 ft lbs universal only for wheel spacer application? i wont end up with warped rotors if go over torque specs?

you're not going to warp your rotor by doing that.

torque the spacer at 100 ft-lbs (not ft/lbs) and torque the wheel at 83 ft-lbs. I usually torque every wheel I own at 80ft-lbs.

You are introducing an aluminum wheel spacer into the equation thus the torque needed to "seat" the lugs and wheels is a bit different. You'll be fine.
