Thumbs down I thought aluminum rims were supposed to stick to steel hubs?

Mine like to fly off on the highway.

30 minutes later and a visit from Junk90XJ with a floor jack and 8 more lug nuts, I'm rolling again.

No matter how much your impact gun is supposedly rated for, check and retorque your shit.

Steelies can be impact gunned on. Aluminums should be torqued. I had my own wheel pass me once. Thats how I know. I wish it was caught on video.

To think you question my ability to turn a wrench. Your such a joke. In my 18 years of wrenching I have never had a tire fall off.

I think you need to keep your wrenching comments to yourself from now on.

I mean in 18 years of wrenching and in 14 years of driving I have never had a tire fall off.

Screw ups nothing like this. I made some mistakes but they were very minimal. Nothing that would cause damage to something that isn't broke.

I think my biggest screw up was when I was in the corps. I was replacing an engine in the LVS. The engine was a 92v Detriot Diesel. I forgot one bolt that was in the bellhousing of the trans. Ended up breaking the part of the bellhousing that the bolt was in. Needless to say this was the first time I replaced this engine. But other then that I never had any other major screw ups.

The man brings up the statement that I can't turn a wrench. But I never had a tire come off while driving down the road. Hmmmm who can't wrench.
