Those are now the two most important nuts you have.
I mean... There's a 50/50 chance that you're right.
So who did you throw under the bus at work?
That was my first thought, lol.
Remember 2 uga dugas to seat and 5 uga dugas to torque.
Same thing happened to me 2 weeks ago on my way into the office. Lost 4 of the 5, with the 5th one barely hanging on.
What's interesting, this looks like a Jeep Cherokee as this also happened in my 2015 jeep cherokee Trailhawk. Dad thinks someone tampered with the wheels because there's no way they all came loose.
Weird...this is a 2015 Trailhawk.
Always check the lug nuts after anyone touches your tires, my wife lost a wheel on the highway about 5 years ago and I had one almost come off a couple of years before that. Since then we always check and retighten our lug nuts.
Second this! My wife lost a tire on a major road after tire work as well. Can't believe how common it must happen.
Is that someone loosening your bolts to try and make you crash or did they just somehow lose their thread and fall out
I just changed my winter tires at the dealership last week. I’m assuming that’s the issue. I had a good chat with them when I got home. They sent someone right over to fix it.
Holy cow! You’re lucky it wasn’t worse!!!! Edit: wow thanks for the upvotes!
Yes. I pooped my pants a little when I got home and saw that. When the front end started to shake I was only 5mins from home and it didn’t feel like anything serious.
Edit: I pulled over when I felt the vibration. Everything looked fine, bolts were on the tire. When I drove the 5mins home and parked this is what I found.
FYI If that happens to any of you in the future, whatever the reason. Unscrew one of the bolts left and reinstall it on an opposite bolt to make them temporarily more secure and GO TO A GARAGE immediately to get new bolts.
DO NOT DRIVE LIKE THIS PLEASE FOR EVERYONES SAFETY.
When I pulled over 5mins from home they were all there. Not so much when I checked after parking.
Holy fuck! That could have ended badly. Were the lug bolts completely sheared off?
It looks like they just loosened and fell off...if they were even tightened in the first place.
Thanks for the reminder to buy a torque wrench
I bought one today after this.
It’s a Jeep thing.
You wouldn’t understand
Can't have shit in Detroit
*takes notes* I'm getting my tires replaced pretty soon here, good to know
Always re-torque after changing tires
I love how the OP comments that a dealership fucked this up and then every other dumbass ...."iTs A jEeP tHiNg hue hue hue".........
100km/h is closer to 60mph, 110km/h is almost 70mph (68.3 to be exact)!
That could have been a disaster!
I'll make a note to check the lug nuts after any wheel work from now on.
110km/h is closer to 70mph
I had this happen to me but my tire fell off as I was driving. All the studs had broken mid-drive while I was going past a school. For a couple seconds while the momentum was carrying me, before I hit the brakes, my wheel was driving next to me like a fucking cartoon
Could’ve been worse! I remember those bad boys falling out during a road trip halfway cross the country, wheel ran away, almost slept in a mechanics shop lol
This didn’t happen because they forgot to tighten the lug nuts. This happened because they overnighted the lug nuts with a impact gun rather than torque them to the correct spec. The studs cracked and sheared off when they got their first impact. I’ve seen shops do this because they’d rather just run the air gun on them until they stop turning rather than grab a torque wrench. Very lazy
Edit: didn’t know the newer Jeep cherokee has lug bolts now. I have the Newer grand Cherokee and they still have stud and lug nuts. Wouldn’t think that they would be different but they are for some reason
r/confidentlyincorrect This Jeep doesnt have studs and lugs.
You are so lucky!!! As a Jeep owner, I’m not shocked to see this failure. I have a 2016 grand Cherokee Diesel and I’m now on my 5th serious recall in 60k miles. To put that in perspective, the truck only needs an oil change ever 10-12k miles so I have had a recall almost every oil change so far. I’m not talking about a bad floor mat either. The recalls rage from an emissions scandal to the current one where my Jeep could catch fire at anytime. I also have three service bulletins that Jeep has identified as possible safety concerns. One is the active head rest that is designed to spring forward in a collision could go off at any time and Mike Tyson me. “Everyone has plans until they get punched in the face”
I guess what I’m saying is, welcome to the Jeep family.
So you lugged it all the way home on two nuts.
So next time you know to pull over and check things out instead of to keep driving, right?
The same thing happened to me. I went to “joffy luge” to have my tires rotated (the first and last time I ever went there) and I was headed out of town on vacation. The front wheel started to make some noise so I stopped by the local Valvoline shop… Which was the only repair shop open at the time… And the guy said take a look at this. And it looked exactly like your wheel.
We were lucky. So are you. Congratulations
Well that was stupid
Ngl, my first thought was: why would a spool of green fishing line make the wheel shake, then I saw the missing bolts.
The get you home solution:
Take one lug from each of the other wheels, and transfer to this wheel. Make sure to check all remaining lugs on all wheels are secure. Drive at reduced speed if practical to reduce stress on the remaining lugs.
Get a mechanic or Tyre workshop to inspect and repair properly immediately if you don't posses the required skills to do it yourself.
When your front end starts shaking, it's always best to continue as if nothing is wrong.
Damn that's nuts!
Idk dogs could drive. Impressive. Mine just lick their asses all day.
For everything that happens in everyday life that makes you say "well, that sucks"
