      Is it sad that I initally wanted a certain set of wheels, but after I saw that they weighed more than the stock steelies, I decided I no longer liked them? And even sadder that I thought about looking for jetta steelies (16 inches vs stock rabbit @ 15 inches) since I'm too broke to spend $$$ on decent lightwight wheels that will handle daily driving duty?

      not sure what happened yet the car is still on the road.
      we belive the lug bolts busted off causing the wheel to come off slaming on the wheel poping the rim(not the rubber) luckly the wheel stayed in the wheel well. more info soon

      ouch, that happened to me before on my 66 Ghia, the tire shop overtorqued the bolts and stripped the drums

      could you not just take a lug bolt from each wheel to get it off the road? AAA? IIRC, I have some extra lug bolts, but I think they are cone seat, but they'd do in a pinch...

      i got lug bolts at the house, the oem ones. But were going to go back and put my spare tire on and loctite the bolts on and plug the brake line and try to drive it atleast to my house which isnt far. But yeah it is off the road, right when it happend i turned off in that split second and yanked on the e brake(smart quick thinking).

      Think im low enough now?

      Good thing the fender isnt ****ed up and lemme show you why!



      And this is why you dont bolt down your front fender at the bottom

      ouch! something similar happened to me a couple years ago, when the end of my axle broke off. was nowhere near home, it was 1am, and in that parking lot for about 2 days while i waited for my new axle to come in.

      it seems (for now) that i resolved my axle nut issue lights came in today and i'm hoping i'll have enough time tomoro to put them in so i can goto the meet

      Thanks man

      Should be around 350 to the wheels, but I've seen similar setups go over 400, which is too much for that car IMHO, but I will be able to control the boost via MS for optimal driveability
