Pulled over on the side to the thruway after feeling some vibrations to find that my rear left wheel was missing a stud and lug. Happened just after pulling out of the gas station. The one stud was broken off completely and the other lugs were a little loose. Any longer on the road and I think the wheel would have fallen off :eek: I dunno how the lugs could have gotten so loose.

I think i'm going to get all 5 studs replaced before I do any more driving. Anybody know how much this is going to cost me? Is this something I can do in my driveway?

gonna try to get the dealers to replace them, but i doubt it'll be under warranty. They'll prolly blame it on my aftermarket wheels. Guess I'll find out soon enough.
