    I had a friend that got his truck broken into. His speakers and headunit were stolen. He had to go to class though just after he discovered this. For the most part it's just a straight drive. However, making a right turn into the school parking lot he said the rear driver's side of the truck slammed down, something banged his door, then he saw his rear wheel/tire bounce by.

    Turns out the theifs tried to jack his wheels to but discovered he had lock nuts and just left the other lug nuts loose or off. He hadn't noticed th is and during some stress of a turn on the wheels one just popped off, bounced into his door and left a big dent and then went on its way.

    I'm willing to bet that's what happened to you too. You had a couple lug nuts loose and overtime the rattling and stress of turns either turned em the rest of the way off or popped them off. I'm glad you're okay.

    the security bolts are generally not as stong as the normal bolts so if the others. Therefore you should never tighten them as much as the others - this also stops you *****ing the heads/tool on them up as they are too tight.

    Probably was a case of the other bolts being slackened off or even removed.

    i have TSW rims and haven't had a problem with them.

    your lugs were probably not torqued correctly or like everyone else said about the thief being too lazy to tighten them for you. lol

    sorry for not replaying earlier guys...but today was another great day. I woke up this morning to a dead battery, and the funny thing was that because my locks are broken, I couldn't even get inside it. After waiting 1 1/2 hours the AAA people came, slimmed me in and jumped the batt. Here are the pics from the rim incident. What you guys don't know is that the lugs were all still attached as in pic1 (look closely). And mind you all.....I hit nothing....ever!!
