I learned this the hard way. When I was about 20 I got a brand new set of Aluminum's and they didn't tell me to check them after 100 miles...until it was too late. I was on my way back to college and heard the lug nuts start ringing off. Needless to say by the 2nd one I realized what was happening. I got off of I-85 just in time...furtunately there was minimal rotor damageOriginally posted by wannabe
With Aluminum wheels you need to retorque after 100 miles. The older style wheels have softer alum. and it causes the lugs to back off after it compresses.
