[Canadian Tire] Maximum 1/2" Torque Wrench and 24" Breaker Bar Combo pack - $59.99 starting Jun 7-Jun 10

Not sure if this is hot but I just saw this from the upcoming Big Red Weekend flyer starting June 7-10. Pretty decent price since the last one a year ago. Maybe a good time to get one especially for those who missed out from previous sales.

I personally got the Princess Auto torque wrench and I'm still contemplating if I'll get this one as well to compare.

$60 combo would be a pretty good deal! that I would buy right away!

As for the torque wrench CanadianTire(CT) vs PrincessAuto(PA), PA is rated for "10 to 150 ft-lb" whereas CT is "50-250 ft-lbs"
It will all come down to what car you will be changing tires on. I did a quick google and found https://www.discounttiredirect.com/learn/wheel-torque

Personally, when I buy tools, i always make sure I'm buying something that's 10~25% above what i'll be using it for. So in terms of the torque wrench, I would pick CT > PA

I have both of these items. Bought the torque wrench on sale for $54.99 and the breaker bar on sale for $9.99.
Both work well, no complaints.

The one at PA is build cheaper. It's also shorter by about 2". I have both.

That's right, no CT tools have a lifetime warranty anymore. Probably due to pros buying them and bringing them back every time they break something (use cheap tools all day and it's a matter of time).

Some tools do, just not their torque wrenches. That reminds me, I need to exchange some CT ratchets that keep switching direction on me
