Don't really know, but I always just Tighten it pretty firm and I've been fine for 2 years now? Know that I've taken my wheels off and put them on many times before, you should be fine

PS: Just don't tighten it too hard where your bolts are making a stripping sound.....STOP!!

guess it is 80ft/lbs. But I'm sure no harm will come if you do 90.

When I worked in a shop we used 90-100 for pretty much all cars. I suggest you use 80 ft/lbs if that's what honda suggests.

it depends on the type of rim
steel or aluminum
I believe 80lb for aluminum and 90-100 for steelies
check your owners manuel it might be there
