Ashman don't be so hard on
the tire store that initially wants to put the impact wrench on the lug nuts. I found a little local mom and pop tire store and once they learned how I am they do not have any problems with it. Just tell them up front that you want to hand tighten the lug nuts yourself. I am like Larry, I do the majority of the work myself when I take it to the tire store for balancing. The first time I did it they thought I was nuts but I don't care. What got me to doing this was once when I took the CRV to have the tires balanced and the next time I tried to rotate them I played heck trying to get the lug nuts off. I always tighten them with the lug wrench that is in the trunk because that is what I am going to have if I have a flat out beside the road.
