It is in my Owner's Manual : 80 ft-lb (or 110 Nm). But we may have different sized bolts ?

Wow!

80 ft-lbs is a lot of torque.

Small block Chevy head bolts are 65 ft-lbs and main caps are 70 ft-lbs.

Eat a sandwich before working on the wheels.

I don't know that you can compare head bolts and main caps to wheel bolts. But 80 ft-lbs is not a lot for a wheel bolt. I think my E550 sport has 96 ft-lbs.
