The torq-sticks are made from a flex steel technology. basically they take a straight peice of steel heat it up and twist it. Which makes it flex to a certain point. Our shop does use them from the beginning. If a customer request that we tighten them by hand, we have 3 torq wreches that get recalibrated every year. And on any sports or luxury rims it is an automatic hand torq. Plus if a customer says that we were the last to work on their car in this area we take care of it no matter the cost. The color coded chart does list the torq settings for each car and by size, for instance my car's lug is a 13/16 lug that gets torqed at 80psi so there for I use our orange torq-stick. The companies color code for idiots.
