[Help!] Anybody have a torque wrench and a jack Whitby/Oshawa area?

Not having a good week.. Just trying my luck here. I had a flat tire on the way last night going home from Oshawa to Toronto. I had to immediately return and park my car to my friends place.

I'm gonna try put on my winter set today, however I do not have a wrench or a jack to raise my car. I'm lowered on Eibach's so I'm not sure if any jack would do the job

I'm gonna try the local canadian tire to see if they have what I need, but for the worst case scenario is there anybody in Whitby/Oshawa area that could help me?

I would really appreciate if you could at least give me an advice guys.

(What kind of jack and what size of wrench do I need? Wheels are OEM 18s)

Thanks in advance!

17mm wrench and I would think you need a low profile jack (since your lowered). Check the post up top, I think Canadian Tire has the Aluminum low profile jack on sale for $99

Any jack would do it, if you have enough wood to drive the car onto to get the jack under the car.

I'm in Ajax with the stuff you need but I don't get home until late from work.

Thanks alot guys! I have solved the problem, found a friend who had a basic jack on his e46, and it worked well.

p.s I found a nail on one of my rears in the winter set.. It was a small one and didnt look problematic so i took it out. It looks fine for now..
