America's Tire Store/Discount Tire use a torque wrench, and they rotate for 
free.  I believe this includes when you bought the tires elsewhere (although it 
is courteous to buy the tires from them when you need them).

I've heard that some places, it might have been the place I mention, have some 
kind of a new color coded extension that is resilient, like rubber or a spring. 
These extensions supposedly flex when the desired torque is reached.I haven't 
seen them.
