a mate of mine bought some secondhand rims and lost a wheel on the freeway, apparently due to the fact that he was given aluminium nuts..! They worked themselves loose after a day of fitting them and he watched his front right wheel overtake him on the freeway as he ground to a halt from 100 kays surrounded by sparks.
Just bloody lucky he lives to tell the tale.
He also discovered that for exactly this reason apparently aluminium nuts are illegal..

can anyone correct me here?


WTF if what you are saying is correrct then why the hell do they make aluminium nuts for? :roll:

It may not stop the nuts from coming loose but with a white paint pen apply some signature marks on the nut heads to show if they have moved or even some on the face of the flat side to show if they have been tampered with after fitting.
