Studs and lug nuts in good shape I'd say 120.

Thank you. It’s surprising how this basic question has zero google return. I did 90. Thanks again

I'd say that is low for that size tire and weight.

The torque on my 1 ton trucks is 130.
So,a 1/2 ton will be somewhat less.
Although I've never torqued a 1/2 trucks lug nuts.

In comparison, the wheel torque on my 2017 Sierra Denali crew cab 4x4 with 22-inch aluminum wheels is 140 ft lbs.

Aluminum wheels are require a lot more torque. Steel less. I've snapped off a few steel lugs.
