I would guess that you might have torqued the lug nut to high. Shouldn't be more than 100 ft-lbs.

Do you have a torque wrench that had preset values?

Otherwise you might have bought a bad batch of wheel studs.

Guess I am going to buy a torque wrench on my way home thanks with the wheels coming from a mustang this should not be a hub issue should it?

I would address your questions to a Mustang forum. Maybe someone else has the same issue?

I'll be glad to add to that fund...where do I wire the funds, Africa? Sending the troll on his way can't come soon enough. Better yet, don't feed the troll.

Hmmm...something doesn't seem quite right about "wire funds" and "Africa", not sure what. :shock:
Take care,

unfortunately, he didn't take up the offer/Course because he lacked the faith which he so much professes here due to his unbelief :lol:.....the Good Master warned of such folks, "by their fruits ye shall know them"......

so no need to wire funds to Africa.

Thanks for the input apparently the lug holes are no longer round causing the wheel to shift Back and forth on the flat bottomed lug nuts I don't know if the rim can be fixed or if I just use some acorn style lug nuts would do the trick

When one or more holes are out of round (egg shaped) this occurs from running with the lug nuts loose.

I would take your car to Discount Tire and ask them to fit the best lug nut that will work on these worn holes. :P
