Thanks to Amazon its algorithm which knows that I own a Nissan, I found out that KTC (Kyoto Tool Company) makes and sells torque wrenches that are pre-set to the wheel lug nut torques for various JDM car manufacturers.
For example, the blue one torques at 85N-m for Suzukis and Nissan kei-cars; the black one at 103N-m for Toyota and Daihatsu cars, and the red one at 108N-m for Nissans and Hondas.
Naturally I sprang for the Nissan specific one as it was heavily marked down during the recent Amazon Prime day sale. Thanks Amazon!
|Made In Japan, of course!|
|I wasn't expecting a case but this is a nice touch!|
|Love how there is a Certificate of Calibration|
|Blue band is 17mm for Nissan, Yellow is 21mm for the Lexus|
|Love how Ko-ken has these knurled extension bars.|
Everything was tight, except for one nut on the front right wheel. Nice! As for removal, I had previously bought a Ko-Ken ZEAL series cross series lug nut wrench.
I have a breaker bar somewhere too. So in summary, now I have all the specific tools to perfectly remove and re-mount my wheels. If I ever have a need to do so (with carbon ceramics, the wheels don't get brake dust dirty anymore...)
Anyway, yes it is sad that I am so busy these days that I can only post this kind of stuff. I actually have a few things that have accumulated in my garage I need to get done soon. Hmm...
