Is the proper torque on my wheels really important?

Quick answer, yes over tightening of the lug nuts can cause the threads to be pulled or distorted everything will be fine until the next guy tries to remove them. Many times the threads will be so badly damaged that the nut will damage the thread on the stud and the shop will have to come to you to tell you we need to replace a wheel stud, you get mad at them when really it was the last person that messed things up. Wheels should always be tightened with a torque tool or a torque wrench.
