2003 Tacoma Lug Nut Torque

Yeah today I went and got my free tire rotation from Tire Warehouse and I asked them what size socket they used with their torque wrench on my lug nuts. They told me 21mm. I asked because they have something in fine print saying to make sure you have your lug nuts retorqued after driving 25 miles or so. I didn't wanna go back so I will retorque them myself with a 1/2" torque wrench I have at home. They told me to torque them at 110 lbs. For the heck of it when I got home I looked it up in the manual and it says 83 ft.lbf. However it does say 110 N.m I am a little confused. Are they over torquing my lug nuts or is this nothing really to worry about? Thanks.

+1. one of the main reasons why people get broken studs is from shops over torquing the lugs. the stress weakens the stud which can lead to broken studs.
