I really like this guy... no bannage, he stays!


And for-the-record, I only ever use the stock 1foot long tire-iron that came with the car... that way I know I can get the ******* off when I'm on the side of the road. I ******* HATE SHOPS that use impact wrenches, cause you're fucked when you need to change a tire in an emergency.

When I bought my Konig Heliums from Goodwin I also ordered the McGard spline-drives. They are awesome and the special tool fits in the stock 1foot tire-iron. I never bother applying anything to the threads and I've never had a single problem in 30-40 tire install/removals.

i did go to princess auto before, but when i went they were sold out...so really cant do anything about that and its an hour drive so i dont feel like going back. And i cant shove anything to go around the lug to get it out because the hole that is around the lug is to small the rim hole w.e so that is why i have to drill it out there is no other way. Crappy Tire had a sale but they were sold out to, it was 60$ now there back to 120$...

Do you really live in such a shitty little town that UPS and FedEx won't venture into it?

A good impact gun has a torque adjustment on it, so that you can dial the gun's strength as appropriate. If they guy running the gun set the torque dial correctly, you can have perfectly torqued lug nuts w/o having to get a torque wrench out of the box. Unfortunately, what happens is the mechan-o-monkey will leave the gun on the highest torque setting, which can be nasty. When I use the impact to put my wheels back on, I usually set it to a soft setting, then lower the car and get the final 1/2 turn in with a 1/2" torque wrench.

I take the extra 60 seconds per tire and snug them up in the air, then drop it on the ground, then torque to 80 ft.lbs.

If you can **** up lugnuts, mabye you shouldn't be browsing a site that promotes assembling and designing your own turbo kit?

Cool down. You are on the verge of being the forums new kicking boy.If you must continue to act like a whinny little 18 year old bitch who lives in mommy and daddy's basement at least have the decency to change your location to Montreal, Quebec. Everyone (including me) already thinks the french are idiotic ********.

This is done. **** always starts like this because one person says something stupid and then others and then this happens. So maybe if people didnt say stupid **** to other people we would all have a good time

Maybe if your dad had used a condom I could have spent the 3 minutes of my life I've poured into this topic to do something more productive, like help solve problems for people who aren't Canadian.

Requesting name change to something involving "drift" and a location change to SoCal?

+1 lol this is great you buy rims, prolly tighten them alottt and they break when you try to take them off, so you drill them out.... i wanna know how you are driving around with a effed up rim.. i wouldn't be lol..

back on topic with the tightening. i've always just used a regular tire wrench and done it by hand.. but then again i work at a car shop and have changed rims on cars once a week or more.. i do more electronics than anything so any electronic question let me know
