Where do I get a lug nut socket

Rather than look all over town, does anyone know a good store or brand to buy a 3/4" 6 point long 3/8" drive socket to use with my torque wrench to keep tabs on my AS lugs?

Craftsman at Sears, or Snapon from a good auto parts house. I am sure that there are other excellent quality tools also, but these two come easily to mind. Both with unlimited replacement warranty policies.

I have been told that you should use impact sockets when using a torque or impact wrench.


ps: 2air you beat me to the draw again

Have to say it I bought all my sockets (1/4, 1/2 and 3/8 drive and extensions and ratchets - deep and standard) from pawn shops over the years. I buy only CRAFTSMAN and Snapon - warrantee's carry over to the current owner.

They will sell the standard impact 3/4 deep socket for under $2. MUCH cheaper that the name stores.
