just wanted too pass along, yet another episode of over tightning wheel nuts.....few yrs ago, my mother was on her way home from Georgia, had some work done on her front brakes, the wheel nuts were cranked on with a air gun....over tightened and all the studs stress cracked and she lost her front drivers wheel going up the I-75....she held on, but not shaken...........today my step son was here to change his front struts on his car.........could barely get the lug nuts off, they were so over tightened the threads were commpressed and even the shoulders showed over torque........i had to retap all the lug nuts, and run the die over all the studs........he will be getting new lugs tomorrow.....point being......when tightning wheel nuts, car, truck or trailer, hand torque always.....
just passing along somethin that gets overlooked........cheers, and may all your nuts be safe and tight.........correctly......:mums:

My twins turned 13 today. Surprised my son with his own boat. Not a Feathercraft but it will do.

What a great memento and tool to have around. Thats a piece if it were mine you'd have to pry it out of my cold dead hands to take from me.
