I heard of a guy killed a few years ago when a tire/rim from an oncoming vehicle came off and through his windshield. Someone was looking over you!

could be worse

yes it could

how about loosing both right side wheels on a tandem trailer going north through Ga on Christmass morning
27' boat running 75mph
by the time I got it stopped and moved across 3 lanes of traffic the disk rotors where half gone
we think someon tried to steal the rims due to I already had over 400 miles in tow from FL

Worse things about rims is if you do not have them seated properly and totally flat you can actually torque them tight but uneven. Main reason to start the proper criss cross pattern

Was driving the Pennsylvania Turnpike at 65 mph, passing a station wagon in the right lane.
The left rear wheel on the wagon started to wobble, then just as I hit the brakes to keep back the tire and wheel shot out from under the car. It hit the center guard rail, took off into the air, and passed completely over the opposite three lanes of traffic then down a 50' embankment. All five studs had sheared off.

I pulled into a dealership one day for some parts and just happened to notice that one wheel was actually missing some lug nuts. I never really pay attention to the nuts so why I noticed this is a mystery to me. I'm pretty sure that these nuts just didn't fall off by themselves either-they were helped.
