Placed my order and received the wheels with brand new bolts. Had the tires and wheeels installed at a local dealer. However after less than 20 miles the left front wheel started acting "funny"; I thought the tires and wheels didn't fit properly, but found I was missing two lug bolts and the wheel was almost coming off!
I am not sure if, the bolts supplied are not correct or they were improperly mounted. All of the bolts needed tightening. The funny thing is the tire guy uses a torque wrench to tighten the bolts.
The nett is one wheel is mucked up and now I know I will have a finger pointing exercize to mitigate. I did buy the wheels from one of the site sponsors, but we will see how that goes.
The lug bolts supplied appear to be the same diameter, but much longer.
Anyone else have a similar issue?
