    For those that rotate their own wheels on their Model S', what jack stands/lifts and torque wrench do you use/recommend?

    Last time I mentioned the Craftsman beam wrench I use I got derepped so I'm studiously not mentioning it :wink:.

    I've only rotated at the point of change to winter wheels and back (~7k miles) so haven't needed the stands.

    I use a Milwaukee impact wrench.

    I use the CDI torque wrench that I got from Amazon. It's solid and woks well.

    I also got some 1/2 inch sockets that work well with the stock lug nuts (21mm) and the Rial Lugano lug nuts (19mm).
