I use a breaker bar and then will use my foot to step on the end of it to break the lug nuts loose. Then I have a little baby Dewalt impact that I’ll spin them off with.
Putting them back on, I hand start them, then spin them on with the Dewalt and torque to spec with a torque wrench (in 3 passes). I’ll then stop every 25-50 miles to re-tighten any that loosened and will repeat until none take any more tightening.
- Sockets that fit lug nuts and rims
- Breaker bar
- Torque wrench
- Cordless impact wrench (nice to have)
- Bottle/floor jack
Important! Always try this at home first! The safety of your driveway/campsite is a whole lot better than roadside with cars whizzing past.
