I have to replace a broken wheel stud in the rear of a kia Optima. I do not have an impact gun to tighten down the stud properly but I do have a torque wrench. The problem is that the hub will spin when trying to tighten it with a wrench.
So my question is, can I put the wheel back on, lower the car, and tighten the lug nut onto the stud to get it tightened? Is that a good way to do it or is that not recommended? It is the only way I would be able to get the stud tightened.
