I think the money for a torque wrench is worth just knowing nothing major is on too tight or too loose.
I ended up buying one too, but it only goes up to 80 ft/ lbs and worse it doesn't have Nm on it. Some weird Kg markings.

That and using the locking nut is a pain. I just hate it. Maybe i'll learn one day. I do remember seeing your thread too.

I'm going to pull the wheels off tomorrow and make sure it's torqued correctly. I don't want to go onto the highway to have the bolt sear off or something like that.
