Most passenger cars vary between 80 and 100 ft lbs. Check your owner's manual for the proper specs.

Isn't it the weight applied to the wheel multiplied by the nominal wheel diameter divided by the coefficient of friction between the wheel and ths surface it is skidding on?

If you want to know at what torque wheel nuts must be fastened:

Check the workshop manual for the specific vehicle.
