I see there are cheap ones and not so cheap ones

I want to get the right torque on my wheel nuts

The guys at the tie store just spin them on with air

If I had a choice, I would want one with a digital display. However, before those existed, a LOT of lug nuts were installed without them falling off or breaking the studs.

Of course one of my long time pet peeves is shops that install the nuts so tightly that I can't get them loose without using a cheater on the stock lug wrench. As soon as I get the car or truck home from one of those shops, I always try loosening EVERY nut because I don't like surprises when I have to change a tire out on the road.


Those who choose an automatic transmission want transportation. Those who choose a manual transmission want to drive.
