any lubricant will help you achieve the proper torque specs. also you will appreciate not snapping off lugs when they weld themselves after winter. i have never had a nut/bolt come loose on its own, however i have had an entire wheel bond to a hub. required a sledgehammer to remove it even with all the bolts removed.
many shops don't use it because lazy/cheap and no benefit to them. the same reason they hire monkeys that blast the lugs on to 200ft lbs and don't use a torque wrench. Volco tires did mine and my 2ft breaker bar barely got the bolts off. its your car. make your life easier.

if your worried, re-torque once a month to check.

I have this Ridgid impact wrench. I have sometimes problem engaging to the socket, you have to wiggle and use some force to engage socket in this wrench.

Someone else has the same problem?

Re: Torque, wet torque vs dry torque

Most manufacturer's specify dry tightening torque, and adding any kind of lubricant changes the required tightening torque to achieve the clamping pressure they're looking for.

Torque it to manufacturers spec. 99% of the time it'll be clean and dry.

Also, keep in mind battery powered impacts and torque sticks are not always accurate/compatible (believe it or not). Snug it up with the gun, and finish it off with a wrench and you'll be fine.

From what I read it sucks better if you put the higher MaH batteries in it. Like the 6 mah or 9 mah.

That is an assumption we have to make in that case, and usually assumptions do not end up being 100% accurate.

This particular assumption we have to make in the case of HomeDepot makes no sense and that is why we might ask here publicly, because all their tools when are sold as "Bare Toll" or "Tool Only" its already listed under their main Product title, so we don't have to assume/guess.
