I usually knock them loose before jacking up the car. Usually make sure at least two (one top and one bottom) stay finger tight until jacked up though.

Some places let you rate the item without requiring a review. So, the average is based on a few ratings (2?).

Yeah, I almost rolled a friend's car off the jack one time because her lugs were frozen in place I'd forgotten to knock them loose before jacking it up. Got it done, but was nervous for a moment there.

Same here if I'm using a human powered lug wrench or 4-way.

I don't do that method with an impact wrench, since the impact wrench can continue to spin the nut completely off the stud. Which isn't a good thing to do with the car's weight on the wheel.

Spinning one or more lugs off is harmless as long as the top lug is finger tight.

That's a lot of torque, most car lug nuts are tightened to under 100 foot pounds.

Back in the day, Target had an automotive department like Walmart does now. I had a high school job at the nearest Target installing tires, shocks, batteries, etc. We always lifted the vehicles on the pneumatic lift first, then removed the lug nuts with an air powered impact wrench. Normally, you don't have to have a tire on the ground to hold that wheel still when you have an impact wrench doing the work.

Funny thing was, there were times our impact wrenches couldn't break loose lug nuts. That's when we'd get out the oversize 4-way and do it manually.

Nowadays, you can buy electric impact wrenches which you can turn down the torque right on the unit itself. Not a precise measurement, but you stay below the range of the finishing torque that you would use a torque wrench for.

I currently have one of these. Works great for CV shaft nuts, suspension fasteners, and even lug nuts when you are tired and out of energy. Spins lug nuts right off with the tire in the air.

I think sideways movement on the 777 can be as much as 20 feet in the back of the jet. This scenario might happen in a crosswind landing. I'll caveat that with you could also rip the tail off at high speeds so it isn't a good idea with a clean configuration at cruise speeds.

Extremely tall, and evidently armless. No, I don't think we're seeing the full story in that picture. ;-)
