I'm the guy who lost a wheel last week, and all I can say is I'll be watching carefully in the future to ensure that my new wheels are torqued properly.

Yup. No countdown to 5,000 here--just quietly posting away, it sneaks up on you. There are many others not that far behind, post-wise. We'll have to start a club, or something...

Hi, torque sticks are great if used properly. [same as for anything else] But, they only protect from over torqueing [can be under torqued] and there are many duplicate sizes with different torque values. Most major torque stick sets come with 10 sticks. Most of these are 3/4" and 13/16" which also interchange with 19mm and 21mm. I just ordered 5 sets of seven for our Ford dealer, not too long ago. Hand picked the ones we would use most. Torque wrenches are great. On torques high enough for lug nuts, you don't have to hear it click, you can feel it. On lower torques, there is a lot less feeling. If you unload your torque wrench after each use [return to zero or lowest reading] and don't use it for a hammer it will be reasonally accurate. A cheap way to test your torque wrench is to borrow one from a friend, co-worker, or one that was recently recalibrated; And connect them together with a 1/2" drive 1/2" square socket. Then set them both to the same torque. Then pull them together. If they both click at the same time, the torque is the same.

Bob
