    Man, that could have been super bad!

    We're glad you're OK, and the truck can be fixed or replaced, but not a life.

    Thanks, buddy; yeah, it definitely could have been worse if I was driving interstate speeds for sure.

    I guess that's what I get, taking my truck to a local backwoods tire shop to get my tires rotated.

    I believe the air gun kid torqued the crap out of those nuts so tight that it cracked a couple of the studs.

    I had them rotated a few months ago.

    I put on a new wheel hub bearing and rotor and removed the inner fender well and wheel flare to try and straighten the fender out so the door could open.

    It was a long and draining day!

    Whew!

    Oh, I would be pissed!

    You're not running a wheel spacer, right?

    No wheel spacers.

    I’ve had these wheels on the truck since 2017.

    Holy Cow, that's insane and amazing that it didn't do much more damage.

    Were there any bumps in the road before the failure?

    I bet I know why the lugs sheered off; it's that "camper shell" on the back.

    You should take it off and give it to me to ensure no further accidents occur.

    I'm just kidding.

    I'm so glad it wasn't worse, and I'm curious why it happened the way it did.

    No, it was a pretty smooth two-lane road.

    The front end started shaking violently, and I thought I had flat.

    I pulled over and looked, but the wheel was still on the truck, and underneath, it looked all good.

    I was going to limp it out of the intersection to a parking lot, and when I backed up a foot, the wheel came off, and the front dropped on the ground.

    Ha! That shell is one of the best investments I put on this truck.

    I think when I had a tire shop do a rotation a few months ago, the kid using the air gun most likely torqued the piss out of the lugs, causing a few to crack.

    It would be hard to prove, though.

    Three of the studs, you can tell where it had been cracked for a while.

    It must have stressed the others to the point of complete failure.
