Wheel Lug Torque 75,85,95,125

A small issue, but it seems that Land Rover offers a wide variety of info on the torque settings for wheel lugs:

1997 Owners Manual - 125 lbft (170nm)
1997 Workshop Manual - 95 lbft (130nm)
1994 Owners Manual - 75-85 lbft

Board consensus has been 95 or 100. Thoughts?
