Impact guns can be used when you are removing the damaged tire off the vehicle prior to installing the EZ spare. We recommend you use a lug wrench to tighten to lug nuts or bolts after you have securely placed the EZ spare tire on the vehicle. It is important to not over torque the nuts or bolts, however they must be tight and secure.
Do I need a separate torque wrench or can I rely on my impact gun’s setting?Jake Mendell2022-03-01T00:47:35+00:00
We do not recommend using impact guns or torque sticks when installing wheels. Impact guns can damage hardware and wheel finish. Some vehicles, such as Porsches, require the use of special sockets to tighten the hardware without damaging their anodized coating. Impact gun torque can vary widely from low torque (resulting in loose wheels) to extremely high torque (resulting in damage or broken hardware).
