Wheels vibrate after reinstallation

Took the front two wheels off yesterday to paint them and put them back on the car (stock 19" with no spacers) and torqued them down after tightening with an impact gun. Drive the car today and it felt like there were some vibrations coming from the front that I never had before. Should I re torque without using an impact driver first? I tightened them to 105lbs

Did you by any chance take of the wheel weights while painting the wheels? Not sure what else it could be if you have no spacers.

Didn't remove any wheel weights. I'll re torque them today and see if that was the issue

Did you tighten when the car is in the air or on the ground?

Hand tightened in the air then torqued on the ground. When I went to re torque them yesterday I found that the front two wheels were very loose (barely like 25lbs of force) so I torqued to 105lbs and it solved the issue. I guess after reinstalling wheels I should torque them a second time after I've driven on them for a few minutes
