Also paid $25 around that time in store and been using it since for 4 vehicles 2 times per year and still works good was well worth the $$...

I have a snap on digital one also ill grab once in a while and the $25 is just as good just not fancy.

Saw a bunch right at the front door in the Coquitlam location. I think this is an everyday price. Good deal for a torque wrench regardless

so to do you own tire changes, I would need the torque wrench, a beaker bar and both Metric and SAE sockets? I'm not sure if I'm getting a diff vehicle in the near future so would those sockets cover most possible lug nut sizes? or can I use sockets from my socket wrench set?
Do I need a lug wrench also??

Are those high-vis poly wheel chucks at $5.55 a good investment too? I need 3 or just 2? or cut 2x4 just as good?

ok i will help you out, so most normal cars using 19mm or 21mm socket, so just have those 2 is kind of good enough.

yes you need at least 18" breaker bar and mostly around 80ft.lb for torque wrench.

some cars usually have the lug wrench stored on emergency kit, so you can use that if you have, but you don't need them.

you also don't need wheel chucks, just use 2x4 or brick and you are good, 2 is more than enough.

you might need big hammer in case you wheel stuck to the rotor, which is a common problem, or using horse kick method might work too.

Bought this, a bit flimsy but should do the job and lifetime warranty.

What exactly do you hit with this big hammer of yours ? Hopefully not your alloy wheels.
If the wheel is stuck, loosen the lugnuts slightly and slowly let the weight of the vehicle back on the tire. That should break the bond, but if it doesn't, gently rock side to side and look for movement.

Never done this for a Japanese car but if the clearance is not much different to a vw then you might want a 3/8" torque wrench to have the clearance with the socket to properly torque it; after tightening by hand, when I used my torque wrench it clicked indicating I reached the torque.

Got the info from here (scroll down near the end of the page where the guy reassembles things):
https://www.paulstravelpictures.com/201 ... index.html

Got that specific page from this post on toyota nation: https://www.toyotanation.com/threads/11 ... ad.900337/

Best of luck!
Hand tight ? You must have a hell of a grip son, to get bolts to 25footlbs by hand.
Those bolts require locktite as well. Red for caliper to bracket. Needs to be heat resistant.
