my w20 with 19.5'' wheels requires 475'# torque on the lug nuts.
i retorqued them when i bought the moho in 2006. they were torqued to about 300-350'#.
i carry a 600'#, 42'' long harbor freight torque wrench, a 3/4'' drive socket set including a 6 point 33mm socket for the lug nuts, and a harbor freight 625'# ''earthquake'' pneumatic wrench.
i used a jackstand or my dw to support the torque wrench when torquing the nuts.
i hope i never have to use these tools to change a tire, but could if i had too.
i also carry a plug kit, air compressor, an unmounted spare tire, and tire irons.
i have aaa rv+ road service and state farm road service for such contingencies.
if their commercial provider doesn't have the proper tools, they will use mine.
