Why in the hell do they persit on putting wheel nuts on with buzz guns

Went to paint my calipers today and i cant get the nuts to budge whats so ever. Dont these people have brains, what if i got a puncture somewhere, i would have been fecked. Now i will need to go to them in the morning and get them to slacken them off

Rant over

Windy guns dont do them too tight if you just run them up, its when they rely on the gun and dont use a torque wrench they become too tight.

So they undo them with a torque wrench then

No clearly not, obviously you use the gun to undo them. In this conversation we were dicussing over-tighting not undoing and what I said is why people end up with wheel nuts that are over tightened

I had to change a whole set of locking nut some time back. And again, after 3 weeks, another set...I have been able to lossen the 2 rear ones, but need to go to the tyre garage for them to loosen the 2 front.

i noticed that when I tried to get my calipers painted too

over-tightening is as bad as under-tightening! thats y u should use a torque wrench! use it all the time at work! (not on cars though... on planes)
