I have a Snap On 150 ft/lb capable torque wrench, but my owners manual specifies 162 ft/lb for my lug nuts. Is there a cheap torque multiplier that can do this?

I'd pass on a torque muliplier that is just a pita and expensive.

Just get a decent inexpensive 25-250 torque wrench.

Are you sure about the 162 ft./lb.? That sounds really, really high for lug nuts. I would guess 80-100 ft./lb. would be plenty. I'd almost be concerned about snapping the wheel studs. A quick glance online shows 100 ft./lb.

On top of that, good luck with changing a tire on the side of the road on a dark and stormy night with wheel lugs torqued to those values.

Just my 2 cents.

My GMC Sierra 1500 calls for 140 ft pounds on the 6 lugs... So 162 doesn't sound all that high???

From what I understand the process for specs over the capacity of a normal torque wrench is 150 or whatever it is + rotation in degrees.

For my Jetta it was max torque + 15 degrees IIRC

EDIT: That was axle nut torque for my compact car, I thought lugs nuts were around 100 ft lbs on cars and light trucks?

The most important thing with lug nuts is that they're all even; torque reading accuracy in not critical.

But on gaskets that involve inch pounds, put your money into that wrench!

I would torque to 150# and call it good. I would probably re-torque them in a few hundred miles (also at 150#) just to be safe... usually good practice for alloy wheels anyway. It would not be unusual for a cheap torque wrench to be off by +/-10%.

Ah this is a 2017 edge,
162 lb.ft (220 Nm)

wowsers.. the old ones were all 100lb-ft so that is sort of odd.

I'd probably just buy an inexpensive unit that goes up to 250 ft-lbs. Or, if you want to spend more, I just bought a split beam clicker that goes up to 250 ft-lbs on eBay, really excited for it.

u kidding me? No way im gonna torque the wheels to 162. Trucks get 140 and cars/suvs get 100. I impact all my wheels on at work with my Milwaukee 1/2 batt impact then go around the cars witha torque wrench to either 100 or 140 foot lbs.

I concur with this - 162 is dangerous in my opinion, because the threaded portion of the stud will be pre-stressed abnormally high.

The result = hit a bad pothole, all wheel studs POP and the wheel says "Sayonara".... No thanks.
