I take it you are assuming your shoes to be size 8, as 10 is 8+25%.  
But you are forgetting that the shoe scale is non-linear, so infact  
the increase is probably more like 5%. and taking the weight into  
account the exact pressure you should exert is:

all of your weight until you feel its good and tight.....

still talking about the wheel lugs obviously!
