I am getting some new wheels and iv had my caliper paint kit lying around for a while so i would like to do them both at once

However

Last time i tried taking of my wheel it was sooo tight i only managed to losen 1 nut and i gave up and i am not small or weak i was also told that i need to make sure the wheel nuts go back to the correct torque

so my question is where can i take it to get done
should i just buy a strong torque wrench ?

i just want this done quick and easy

thanks in advance

Stand on the bar! That's what I do. Never fails to losen the bolts. (I'm not heavy by the way) lol.
However, tried to take wheels off my mates car before and there was no way I could get them off. He had to take it to. Garage and they used a gun on it.

I just jump on the bar to tighten and loosen. Remember the grease though or they'll seize.

Just get a cheap torque wrench whitch is reversible you'll have more power with that to crack them off then re torque Them to 110 nm when your done
