#1--a good 36" breaker bar and sockets to remove the lug nuts. My truck lugs are torqued to 150 lb/ft nad my TT is 100 lb/ft. It takes a proper tool to remove those lug nuts, not a short lug wrench that comes with many vehicles.

#2 Good deep well sockets. My truck lugs are rather tall and regular sockets are not deep enough. The sockets also have to be rather thin walled because of the shape of the rims. Check them out before you need them.

A high-limit credit card.

I'm not kidding. There will be some problems that you end up just having to buy your way out of.

My Titanium (a Canadian Manufacturer) does NOT use Torx. The fastener of choice id "Roberts" #1 and #2. A square recess in the head.

Roberts drivers and power bits in both sizes are available at Northern Tool.

Square bits, aka Robertson, are easily found at Home Depot, Lowes, etc. #2 screwdrivers are found in electrical because they are a common electrical tool. Both bit sizes are found in tools as power bits and in the 52 different bit assortment kits, which go real well with a magnetic tip screwdriver that accepts 1/4 hex bits.
