A regular wrench and a torque wrench are two different tools used for removing and putting back car tires.
A regular wrench is a basic tool used for turning nuts and bolts. It can be used to loosen or tighten the lug nuts that hold the wheel onto the car. However, it is difficult to ensure that the lug nuts are tightened to the correct torque setting with a regular wrench, which can lead to over-tightening or under-tightening.
A torque wrench, on the other hand, is a specialized tool used to tighten bolts or nuts to a specific torque setting. When removing or putting back car tires, it's important to tighten the lug nuts to the manufacturer's recommended torque specification to ensure that the wheel is properly secured and safe to drive. A torque wrench makes it easy to apply the correct amount of force to each lug nut, and to ensure that all the lug nuts are tightened to the same torque setting.
