Why are my nuts coming off and what can I do to stop it from happening? Finished a nice peppy run in to work (read: speeding wildly down a twisty road) and as I pull into the parking lot I hear <PING> and see the chrome cap flying off one of my front lugnuts. I take a look and I've lost one off the rear as well. Whats up with that? Anyone else had this problem?

What'd you do to stick the stupid chrome caps back on?

Hell Serious, why don't you lose those nut-lacking alumiminim wheels and slap on some of those flat black donut spares? Cut your springs while you're at it - you'll be pimpin' the circuit like no other Bumblebee can! ;)

For extra ladies points, wear the CAT.

The Viper's stock nuts are total POS. I have a set of CNC machined SS nuts on my Viper, complete with the Sneaky Pete emblem. You can't beat em.

Pricey I suppose, but worth it, especially for the track.

I heard that installing larger nuts keeps your stuff on nice and tight . . . so tight in fact that you can jiggle them around and they stay on, no matter what.

I never had any problem with my lugnuts, but you might take this opportunity to add a set of lugnut locks.
Good idea.

im sorry but when you are bitching about your nuts, it sounds more like a personal problem

I've only lost about 20 or so, BIG attrition rate at the track with all the torquing. Archer has a solid one for like $2 per nut x 24 = $48, not bad. A little secret, it is the same lugnut as to a '01 Jeep GC only the Jeep nut is cheaper.

BTW, don't put it back on.
Thanks SoCal. I figured it probably had something to do with hard driving. It's just strange they waited til now to start popping off.

Either you aren't torqueing them often enough or I drive like an old lady. I have never had a problem with my nuts.
