IMO, impact guns shouldn't be used to do anything other than loosen things. If you insist on using one, make sure to get it started by hand first (atleast 2 turns). It could be that your not torquing the wheels to proper spec, or that the lugs on that corner of the car were over torqued causing them to stretch some.

I'm leaning towards it not being torqued to spec, or just old hardware.

I figure I can use all the help I can get with Brampton drivers.

i need a new impact gun which brand do u recommend


Electric or air?

Electric: Snap on

Air: any brand really, you don't need Snap On strength/quality air tools unless you're working on a huge ass truck where some bolts are torqued down pretty hard. But to throw out some cheap-ish brands: Ingersoll, Craftsman, Viking, etc. I own a Harbor Freight impact gun and I've had it for about a year now.

You just want to replace the tires on your stock wheels ? If that's the case, the stock wheels wrapped with a low pro tire will open up your fender wheel gap, making it look a bit gross. New set of bigger wheels and tires would look best
