Walmart has torque wrench's for cheap. I'd use one of them for wheel lugs then just trade them out every once in a while if you felt it was out of whack.

I was thinking about doing that with a craftsman.

I picked up a cheap 1/2" drive torque wrench at the Harbor Freight in Richardson, was on sale for $11.00...
