Lugnut torque

Just had my tires replaced. The shop told me to check the torque of my lugs when I get home, which I was planning on doing anyways. The thing that got me was they said to use 120 ft/lbs. I thought Ford spec was 150, but the tire shop told me no to use 150 with aftermarket rims. So which is it, 120 or 150?

All of todays aftermarket wheels can be torqued down to the OE specs. I recommend 150lbs.
