Lug Bolt Torque?

Hi all. I was wondering what torque is correct for the wheels on my e92 m sport. I don't have any tools but was considering buying one of those lug nut torque wrenches. Is that the best budget choice? What are my options here?

Thanks!

I've used everything from Harbor Freight to Snap-on. If you don't plan to change wheels TOO often (constant track days) and don't throw your tools around, the Harbor Freight/Autozone torque wrench should work just fine.

1. Harbour Freight
2. If you're going with Amazon instead, just pick up a Tekton
