I hand start, impact snug, and then finish by hand tightening.  If you start with the impact and cross thread you have to replace the stud.  If you finish with the impact and don’t get it tight enough, or too tight and damage the stud and/or wheel you have to replace them.  When you do this hold the wheel with your hand this allows you to insure the rim is flat against the hub and you can feel how much torque you are applying.  Most important also is not to get distracted before you are finished with all four wheels!  Don’t ask me how I know the last one …………O
