I'm waiting to see what M-T say's. Even if they do take them back, the wait is deadly. The summer will be over by the time i get 'em back
The failure is due to steel lug bolts going into aluminum adapters. Every other adapter i've seen came with studs. Even the Cuddy's adapters came with studs & he has the same wheels. And i never took an impact gun to them for fear of stripping the holes out completely. Definitely not a wise design IMO....unless you were using steel adapters. This is why most adapters come with studs. And lemme tell you, i rarely took the wheels off because i didn't wanna damage anymore threads. When i remove the tranny, i never took the wheels off. Just worked around it.
Things like this aggravate the sh*t outta me. Especially when you've fixed everything else & its running great. The adapters are only 4-5 months old.
I already have a set of studs i bought awhile back. Just need lugnuts. I'm gonna take them down to my machinist in the morning and see what he can do. I'm think he can screw in the studs & bead it around the neck of the stud & in the back. Its beveled enough to run a bead without effecting the flat part. As i'm sitting here writting this, i think this will be my only option...thats if i wanna enjoy the rest of the summer.
