Default What is TPMS sensor torque spec?

Putting on new wheels Monday & trying to get prepared. I know I need to purchase new grommets (dealer only?) and searched for the nut torque spec but could not find it.

Now that all vehicles will have a TPMS and sensors, most good tire shops will have a kit with grommets, valve cores, and maybe even retaining nuts.

The retaining nut requires very little torque. The spec is 62 inch-lbs (only about 5 foot-lbs).
