Well...If I discovered that while traveling, I'd make sure that the remaining lug nuts were properly tightened, but then I would search for an auto parts store and buy a lug nut. Or borrow one from a spare tire mount, if possible.


Heck, you made it that far on 4, so a little farther should be OK.


If I discovered that at home, or wherever, before leaving for a trip, I would replace the missing lug nut first.

Are You KIdding Me! The wheel is not even mounted on the Studs. One lug nut missing is not your problem. Try using the proper wheel and Lug nut studs.:cry ing:

Should be in the Jokes and Humor section. The missing lug nut is the least of the problems with that set up!

Rube Goldberg would be proud

Somebody went through a lot of trouble even if it was just to post a troll pic.

It is more like a “Mondays at the Tire Shop” story.

Yeah, I am probably going to move it there, as this is not really a serious post/question. It is definitely interesting though as to what humans will do.

I have seen this pic before, but luckily it wasn't a customer of mine. I think it was on facebook or something.

Well, this post is certainly in the right place, 'Jokes and Humor', but in the scheme of things, are we just concerned about the lug nuts?

So if I roll into your shop like that and want some super low profile tires mounted, but only on the front two rims that look like that do you take the job? Oh and I'll have the money for you Friday. ;-)

If you roll into my shop like that, you are going to earn a post (or more) in the "Mondays" thread. Lol
