Honestly, I've never used a torque wrench on a wheel and I have yet to have any problems. That's with 24 years of driving and at least a dozen different cars and trucks.

99.9 or the mechanics in the world pay no attention to the torque specs. No matter what they say or claim. That includes folks on this forum!

Last time I had the tires changed on the old Durango I over heard the dealer tech say, "not one of these lugs were tight! I wonder why they didn't fall off?" I ALWAYS torqued my wheels to the correct setting. In the case of the Durango, it was 90 ftlbs.

Once they wheels were back on I asked the manager if he used a torque wrench to put the jugs on. He called the tech over and asked him. Both said "no". I then asked if the even knew what the proper torque was. The both said "no". I then pulled my torque wrench out of the back of the truck and noted, with them watching, that they were tightened down to 160 ftlbs! I then showed them the owners manual where it showed 90 as the correct setting. I then had them put it back on the rack and use my wrench to set them correctly.

I rarely have had a warped rotor and believe proper torque is the reason why.

Actually the average 1/2" will handle it super easy

A good 3/8" gun will probably be able to handle it if you actually let it hammer for a full second or two.
