Canadian tire is your friend... every few weeks they have the mastercraft maximum ones on sale. Those are bad ass. I have one and couldnt be happier.

Cool

Go to Princess Auto in Coquitlam.
Get a $45 torque wrench
http://www.princessauto.com/tools/ha...=torque+wrench
Get a $3.60 17 mm socket for E90:
http://www.princessauto.com/tools/ha...d=17+mm+socket
and get anti seize to lube between your wheel and your wheel hub.
http://www.princessauto.com/shop-gar...seize-compound

If your current wheels are seized, get ready with a rubber mallet.

It's a 16mm hex bolt. Just get yourself a 6inch (there's 10 and 12 inch as well at Canadian tire) extension, 16mm socket and a ratchet and you're good to go.

just tighten the nuts on man... its only a wheel, not a head gasket.

dont forget to re torgue the nuts a day later after you have driven for a bit. sometimes the nuts will loosen.

Ok, I'll be the one to ask why you are looking for a "46lb tq wrench" when the spec is 88 ft lbs?

torque wrench

usually crappy tire has a program of lending tools.....just barrow one... cause you need it only for a day...too bad I live 18 hrs away otherwise I'll lend you it...anyways a good torque wrench will from 150- 300 dollars.....I think the torque specs for it is 80-100 ftpnds......and torque on a proper sequence...

Holee, just read this thread...

OP is talking about the STEERING wheel, not wheels and tires kinda wheels.

No anti-seize is required as Klowny pointed out. 88ft/lbs is for the wheels and tires kinda wheels.
