Subject: Re: Wheel Nuts

Gee, you're posting under the subject line, "wheel nuts," then want to bust my chops because I'm using your terminology. You didn't mention how often you changed your wheels. Depending on the frequency, your experience might equate to as little as 3 or 4 changes over the life of the bolts; however, I was interchanging 3 sets of wheels, plus regular rotation - which equates to 5 or 6 changes per year. These bolts were shit when Saab made them, and they're likely even more shit given that GM now makes them (e.g., I saw a 9-5 tonight with a headlight out. My '88 went 11 years before a headlight went out).
