Black Friday Torque Wrench purchase?

Need a tourque wrench for mounting wheels. May use it for small suspension stuff but my mechanical car expereince is about nil at this point. For wheel mounting will an onsale deal from Lowes do the job (Kobalt)? Am I better of looking at Sears stuff? Or can anyone provide a link of some they recommend? What should I expect to pay?

Thanks!

looks nice. It looks like it only goes up to 150ft/lbs though. I think my Trailblazer wheels need to be torques to 175ft/lbs. I'll need to check that out. Thanks for the link though.

Yeah, but it only goes up to 150 ft/lbs. What do the Camaro lugs need to be torqued too? I think my Trailblazer is 175ft/lbs, but maybe I am wrong.

I got mine years ago off the truck. Used to work as a tech before I went to Corrections.

It's only 100ft/lbs per the torque factory specs. The most I've ever torqued a vehicle was a f250 and up at 150ft/lbs. (I work at Discount Tire)
