Who worked on your tires last. Hubby has a similar situation with his semi when he was still working. Idiot didn't tighten the lug bolts after working on the truck. He lost 2 wheels. On a semi.

I was the last one too tighten lug nuts. Failed to check them after that. My first thought when it happened was to get slowed and stopped safely. Since the camper was allready to go camping we figured might as well. Since we own two Tru ks that can pull the camper we just took advantage of the other truck

Lol. Lessoned learned, never trust a battery powered impact gun. Use it for Spinning them on but torquing by hand

Glad it worked out and did not ruin the weekend... all manufacturers recommend checking lug torque every 1k miles. I always check torque with a wrench if I use an electric style... just don't trust em enough
