Another case of overtorqued lug nuts here. I bent the Saab supplied lug wrench ( misformed the end where it grips the nut ) with my own strength, no pipe added to the wrench. I'm not an overly strong guy, but was surprised that it bent out of shape. Maybe I got a softer/weaker metal one? Then had to reluctantly use my 3/4 drive Craftsman rachet with a 3 foot pipe...and you know how you can just "feel" like somethings going to break, well it felt just on the edge of that, but they all eventually broke free. This is from my "trusted" indy shop. I'll have to ask them to be more carefull in the future...with attitude. Anyway does anyone know if the Saab wrench is standard size lugs for 16" and 17" rims? I have the 17" Fischer twelve spoke rims. Also I know they should be torqued to a specific lbs. but since the Saab wrench is so short, I would assume that a man of average strength cranking down on that wrench is the approximate sufficient tightness/torque at least to get you home safely?
