Agree with posts above, it is WRONG to use impact to install lugs but everyone does it anyway. Impacts are for removal only!

I would argue that one could use an impact to install if one had a real light touch and was able to reliably just seat the nuts but not exceed say 60 lb-ft, then finish with a torque wrench - but that's a lot of "ifs".
