Torque Wrench Recommendations for Wheels?

Hello,

Does anyone have any recommendations for a good torque wrench setup for our cars?

I have been looking at:

TEKTON 24335 1/2-Inch Drive Click Torque Wrench, 10-150-Foot/Pound
TEKTON 24335 1/2-Inch Drive Click Torque Wrench, 10-150-Foot/Pound - - Amazon.com

and

Sunex 2714 1/2-Inch Drive 17mm Covex Extra Thin Wall Mercedes Benz Wheel Lug Socket
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00TLXFEPI/

Is a click type wrench going to work well for a wheel bolt? I've never used of the expensive digital wrenches.

FWIW, I don't have a 1/2" drive torque wrench at all. Only a cheap 3/8".

Any opinions?

Thanks

Bill

Not sure what brand it was, but I had a similar priced (and looking) one from AutoZone and it was a POS/C. I bit the bullet and got a Husky (twice the price) from HomeDepot and have been very happy with it.

Husky... I will check that out.

Was looking at Craftsman (because I don't know any other well known brands) but it seems like it's made in China nowadays.

Thanks
