Lug Nut Torque

So I see that the torque specs on the lug nuts calls for 101 ft lbs. I just put my paddles on the car for the first time and they are mounted to DWT red lables. My torque wrench only goes to 75lbs and I was cringing while tightening them. I felt like I was gonna snap a lug at any minute. Do you guys go to 101 lbs? Has anyone ever snapped a lug going to 101lbs. I just wanna make sure I can torque to the recomended setting without snapping something before I go buy a new wrench

Without breaking out the manual, I am fairly certain that it only says 81ft/lbs, but that's Canadian ft/lbs so don't forget to factor in the exchange rate!!

Just broke out my paper copy manual and yes it is 101 ft pounds. I just use my impact and check with lug wrench and go by feel. And this is american ft pounds not canadian ft pounds.
