HAHAHA.....students didn't snap any off but damn near ran the lug nut through the rim. Glad they had the crappy snap on impact and not the IR231...woulda snapped them off for sure.

All we wanted to do was rotate the dang tires.:tonka:

In all my years I have never seen something like that...but never took a tire off a 62 jeep either.

Somehow I don't think high speed would be an issue with a 62 CJ

My CJ2A is like that, except someone replaced a few randomly with right hand threads at one point to make things a little more interesting..
