Breaker Bar & Torque Wrench - Gardening

Breaker Bar & Torque Wrench - Gardening

In many jurisdictions, the use of winter tires is mandatory. Additionally, many insurance companies extend a discount for their use, required or not. While the tools supplied with your vehicle are serviceable for changing tires in an emergency, there are far better choices for regular use. Changing your own tires with the right tools is a snap, and not only saves you money but also the hassle of making an appointment and waiting for the work to be finished. These tools are highly recommended and available at excellent prices while quantities last.

Breaker Bar
If Archimedes* had owned a car, this tool would have been in his trunk. Just shy of 24" long, this breaker bar provides enough leverage to loosen the most stubborn lug bolt; no more stomping on the end of a chintzy OEM tire wrench to try to apply more force. Made of strong, polished chrome-molybdenum steel, it has a swivelling 1/2" head with a ball detent. Just add a 2" or 3" extension and the appropriate socket for your lug nuts, and you're good to go. It's just the right tool for the job.

* "Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world."

24" Torque Wrench
While everyone understands the problem presented by a loose nut, is it less common to recognize that "too tight" can be just as problematic. A torque wrench lets you know when you have tightened a nut appropriately. This 24" long 1/2"-drive wrench can be adjusted to signal an applied torque from 50 to 250 lb·ft;* the typical torque setting for lug nuts on a passenger vehicle is between 60 and 160 lb·ft, with most in the range of 80 to 100 lb·ft. Just set the desired torque by holding the shaft and turning the handle to the correct setting, and tighten the nut as you would using a regular socket wrench. When you reach the correct torque, the head will click and slip – a tactile and audible signal that you're done.

* Accurate to ±4%.
