I bought the ridgid 1/2" - just because I already have a set of batteries/chargers/tools. Works ok for my occasional home use. Mostly swapping wheels/tires summer - winter.

Re: Rear Brake Pads

Re: Post pics of vehicle you've seen around! (V2.0)

Upgraded wheels & tires. I like the blackwall (either no raised-white letters, or tires are mounted so they're on the inside)
