    Does anyone have any suggestions as to what air wrench (the thing you generally use to take off lug nuts in case im calling it the wrong name) is a good one? Im not looking for the best just one so i can take off my wheels without any trouble. also, do they have torque settings on them, if not then how do you know how much to tighten down the lug nuts when re installing? thanks.

    you can get a good 1/2 inch impact gun from norther tool for a good price..........and just use it to take the wheels off/snug the lugnuts up............then buy a torque wrench for the lugs..........................way i do it and it works pretty well.

    We owned a Craftsman for years and it did well enough for what we needed at the time. But as we got into more intense jobs around the garage, the Craftsman just didn't have enough torque.

    If you want a damn good thumpin' impact gun?

    Get a Ingersole Rand Thunder Gun (street legal).
