    Studs on my driver's side front wheels keep getting lose

    Freak-N-Aye!

    anyone esle have this problem? they become so lose you can spin 'em off w/ your hands...the overt sign is vibrations. I realize this is dangerous. I don;t want to have to check them everytime I feel-up...what a PITA.

    I torque them the same as all the other wheels, no issues w/ them.

    I suspect that the rotor may be warped and the added vibrations from that is loosening the bolts...

    ideas?

    thanks,

    dan.

    I've forgotten about this thread...

    I don't have a torque wrench, so I can't say. It next on my tool list..

    I just think that this is the only wheel I have problems with, so I suspect there's something more here than improper torquing...
