Lug Nut Torque?
I've searched the manual pretty thoroughly, but cannot find the lug nut torque for my 2011 Outback with alloy wheels. I'd guess it would be about 90 lb-ft. I'm doing my 7500 mile service tomorrow while it's warm here - 55F before winter officially starts....tho we've still got ice on the local roads from snow a week ago .
80 to 90 ft lbs is pretty much standard for all lug nuts on all cars

With subies, the standard throughout the years has been closer to the 65-75 ft-lb range (My first gen Haynes manual says 67 ft lbs). I torque mine to 70 and never have issues, but I don't think you will to any harm over torquing them.
As noted above, the wheel nut torque specs is in the Owners Manual. For 2011, its on page 12-8 (Specifications), and in other years either in that section or in the "in case of emergency" section on changing tires.
Also, the spec has changed over the years -- I wouldn't generalize. See Lug Nut Torque
