You'd probably be as well off not using one.silicon_dt said:
For a newbie, a ratchet will be hard to use to get enough torque on the lug without the ratchet moving from perpendicular to the wheel face. Most ratchets aren't long enough to give you the leverage you will need to break the lugs loose to begin with. This is why the 4-way lug wrench is great...you can get even pressure on the lug and not have the wrench move off at an angle.silicon_dt said:Hrm.. so not using a torque wrench... would I just tighten them until they are.. tight? Really tight? Whats the process?
Hand tighten then go another few turns with a ratchet?
Never really messed with wheels so...
