Do you mean lug nuts?

I think those are all 1/2" sockets, and lug nuts are spec'd for around 80 ft-lb of torque. A standard ratchet isn't really designed to give you that kind of mechanical advantage. To even have a shot, you'd need the 193 piece kit of the deals posted.

That being said, this tool [amazon.com] looks like a great upgrade to what manufacturers give you with your new car.

If you're really on a budget, this one [amazon.com] might be OK, too.

You could also snag this Harbor Freight [harborfreight.com] one if you have a store nearby. Use a 20% off coupon and a Free With Purchase coupon to get something else that might be useful.

What is raised panel? Is that referring to the craftsman branding on the side of the wrench, like it is on a raised panel, instead of a fully polished finish. Why are fully polished wrenches usually more expensive? Is their some real advantage or is that just a cosmetic thing?

Raised Panel would be the practice of creating the taller, smooth section for the writing. It would be near impossible to read a size etched onto the rough surface.

Fully polished wrenches cost more because there's a lot more effort to finish them.

Some people prefer raised panels because they're cheaper or they feel like the matt finish is less likely to slip.

Some people prefer fully polished because they look nicer and are much easier to clean. You basically just wipe them down and you're done.

It really just comes down to personal preference. I'd much rather have an affordable, comfortable wrench that isn't unnecessarily heavy and doesn't dig into the hands while using them than fret over their finish.

Those 1/4" drive 11-pc sets that are now shown here as sold out look like a great find. They are made in USA, if the photos are accurate. Very rare to find. Sears has not sold those in a long time.

Sold out online, but you can search to see if they're available for local pickup (I have several nearby options where I am).

BTW - a tip on noticing the USA ones from a distance - I've noticed that the older USA tool kits would often come in plastic boxes with smooth rounded corners, vs. the newer China ones have rectangular, beveled edges.
