Torque wrench

Anyone know of a good, inexpensive torque wrench and where would be a good place to get one, i.e Crappy Tire etc...

Just something $100 or less so I can rotate my own tires since I don't trust the tire places who think its ok to use an air wrench to tigthen them.


Whaddya mean I dont pay my bills?? Whydya think I'm broke!!

Princess auto is good, but you might want a warranty in case you drop it or something along those lines. I bought one from there before and it was pretty good but it fell and wasn't the same, I ended up buying one at crappy tire with a life time warranty.

I borrowed a Princess Auto one from my buddy. Brand new, never used it before. First lug nut I tried, it snapped the socket "reciever"? off inside my socket. I am not the HULK....LOL
