Which rotor removing tool attachment do I need for my Shimano hubs?

44mm or 41mm? I’ve no idea, they all look the same in the photos

required torque is 40nm which sounds excessive to me!!.....not sure how you do that accurately with the spanner type tool ! ...............it is however less than half the price of the socket type whose primary role is as a BB tool.

I guess someone who blocks me has already replied to tell you it's the blue tool. As for whether a socket and torque wrench or the flat ring spanner is best. I honestly wouldn't worry. Even at the correct torque centre lock rotors have a tendency to come loose. And once they have, the splined interface tolerance is never quite as good anymore and from then on they have even more of a tendency to come loose again.
It's kind of a terrible system.
Unless for some reason you remove and refit rotors a lot. Or really think you need whatever latest Shimano ice tech technology is being touted good old 6 bolt is a far better solution.
