Discount tire has these torque sticks, they have the right end on them for various different sizes of lug bolts and nuts. THey vibrate so hard that they wont tighten more than a preset torque of 80 ft lbs. I suppose they work pretty good.

Thats the best way if someone wants to use an impact gun on your lug bolts.

Then, use a torque wrench.

Pulling a tool toward you is always better than pushing. Avoids busted knuckles.

If you torque down hot wheels, they will loosen up.
No Benzes in the stable at the moment, but itching for one again.
