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

I use a torque wrench and go to 101 without any problems. I actually get them with the impact driver and this finish them off.
