J Morgan,

Interesting citation and it reinforces using a torque wrench or torque stick with air tools to achieve the correct clamping force of the wheel to hub.

But the current thread about torque wrenches, your own comments basically summarized as, not required, in many variations.

I use a torque wrench on all wheels that I work on.

Broken lug bolts

I don't have to agree with EVERYTHING in a post for it to be otherwise informative.

I have no issue with anyone who wants to use a torque wrench to tighten lug nuts, but I don't,,,, and pretty much wont..

Brevi tempore!

The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......
