I have 15" Dexstar wheels on my TT. The acceptable torque range on them is 90-120 ft/lbs. You need to check your wheel documentation to find the correct torque value needed for your specific wheels. Typically, smaller rims require less torque. Buy a wrench that will work for your needs.

Thank you. Another stupid question. I never used a torque wrench. Can you use it to the losen the nuts as well or just tighten?

13/16 and yes. Craftsmen makes a decent torque wrench.

Go with a deeper socket. Then you'll definitely be good.

Buy a 1/2 inch torque wrench. Go to Harbor Freight, good quality and reasonable price.
