I've only changed one tire in about 40,000 miles on the highway and I re-torqued it myself because the road service guy didn't have a clue what he was doing. I do carry a torque wrench and check the lugs periodically.
Maybe you are the "Tim The Tool Man" type where bigger is better. If so more power to you. I was just wondering.
LOL, Yes I have been accused of being a "Tim The Tool Man" type before, but then sanity does eventually prevail and I buy what I need, not what I want.
I managed to find the ARB for $470.00 at a US distributor and if I had a choice of spending $350.00+US for a Vair 450c, or $470.00 for the ARB, the ARB is going to be my choice. The compressor in my coach right now is a very seized chrome Vair unit.
ARB have been making top quality stuff for off roaders in Australia for decades. If you're travelling the Outback in a Toyota Landcruiser, I guarantee you it has been outfitted with ARB lockers, compressor and other bits and pieces.
Tid bit of info
The difference between the Australian outback and the Canadian Tundra.
If you get lost in the Outback the Aussies will make an attempt to find you.......You go tromping off in the Canadian Tundra without telling anyone in which direction you're heading, and you're on your own. We don't bother looking......it's just too big.
