Today being the first day that it has not rained for a century i decided to set to work giving the car a clean. Got to the part of cleaning my wheels where i noticed something quite frightening
Notice on this photo Three wheel nuts missing!
Firstly i thought maybe somone had tried takeing my wheels but where spooked, so i went round with a socket to see if any other wheel nuts where loose. Started with the front wheels and they where all fine, then checked the other back rear wheel to fined the first bolt just snapped off. I then looked more closely at the other wheel to realise that the bolts have snapped off in the hub.
In this picture one of the wheels nuts is the snapped one, the other is one i removed without breaking. As you can see the one that is not broken has still been cut down in size.
There also seems to be a 10mm spacer between the wheel and hub
Now i am no wheel exspert so i need some guidance here. i need some new bolts, but what one do i need to get? as i dont want this happening again. Is this a problem when wheels are spaced off the hub?
