I'm going to re-torque my new wheels should I get the wheel off the ground first? or is it ok to leave the car on the ground?

The weight of the vehicle does affect a few of the bolts slightly when on the ground, I recommend lifting it just off the ground, then, lower it where it just touches the ground, to prevent the wheel from moving while you retorque
