I have Cragar SS rims on my 57 Chevy. The driver side front wheel lugs came loose (lost 2, other 3 were loose. It has been a while since the wheel was removed, so I am sure that the lugs were tight. Thoughts?

Although I haven't had a problem yet, I believe custom wheels/lugs have a way of loosening up and need to be checked often. Also be sure to torque them.

I figure mag wheels are like factory aluminum wheels. The say to torque them down and then recheck them at every oil change. I like to lost one on my 1989 chevy 4x4. After that i checked mine every oil change for sure. Cost me 130.00 for parts to fix the lug nuts and studs, not counting my time. But i could have lost a lot more since i just got home from a curvy 2 lane country road when i found it.
