I have two wrenches from Sears. The "big" one is developing a ratcheting problem and the "lock" ring broke (I have it tie wraped back on...).
For the most part I would buy one again but be carefull. I think Sears may "fix" the ratchet problem for me, I just have not checked on it.
In your owners manual the recommended torque setting for your lug bolts is 72 ft/lbs. I use this setting ALL the time, track or steet. Don't "over torque" your bolts! This is a case where "more" is NOT "better"!
