How'd you install the McGard's if you don't have the right tools? IIRC, you'll need a 21mm socket to fit the McGard key.

I put a set of custom wheels on a previous car I owned and had to replace the lug wrench. The stock one was too thick-walled to fit into the sockets around the lugs. So, figuring I was going to have to get a new wrench and socket anyways, I bought a cheap parrallel-bar torque wrench and the right socket and kept it with me. So if I ever needed to change the tires, I could make sure everything was torqued up right. THis is also good because some rims need to have the lugs re-tightened after some driving if they were just put on. Plus, it was really nice having that long bar to break the lugs loose.
