Thanks, some spoke wrench kits are cheap kits some are not.
Your right about the nipples being tight.
I tried with a spanner spoke wrench that didn't work well.
Tusk only had five sizes, pit boss had a nice list of sizes.
Some kits have 6.1 6.3
And some have 6.0, 6.1, 6.3
Buy quality tools.,, yeah, they cost more,,, but are worth it,
Please tell me which brand are quality tools.
Yes thanks I could use my 1/4 " in lbs torque wrench with their tool.

Well here is the update on retorquing my smooth profile aluminium wheels
The front is toast,some of the nipples rounded out, and the rim is way out of lateral .030 and radial runout .025
This is the second ride I have owned with
smooth profile aluminium wheels.
Both sets there was problems with the spokes and rim.
Both rides were bought second hand so I have no way of knowing the history of the spoke maintenance.
I can say I did not perform any spoke maintenance.
So I'm done with laced smooth profile aluminium wheels.
I bought a rear and front 28 spoke mag stock wheels for $300.
To fix the smooth profile aluminium wheels it was going to cost 350-400 bucks for just one wheel.
Now I can go tube less and pack a mushroom tire patch kit in the saddlebags.
