Default Arrrrrrrggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I'm stuck on highway in the middle of nowhere Oklahoma because MY FREAKING WHEEL FELL OFF!!!!!!

Tow truck will be here in 1.5 to 2 hours. Hoping they can get it fixed today. If not, does anyone happen to know if UKC does entry fee refunds and if so what their policy is?

Vibes that it's affordable to fix?

Thanks for checking and for vibes!

At least it was only $54 in entry fees, so not too bad.

Hopefully it's something simple like someone didn't tighten a bolt correctly!

Scary! I just glad it didn't happen at night and you're okay! I hope it's an easy quick fix.

The wheel fell off the car? Like because the lug nuts were gone? Or the axle came apart?

Vibes for getting picked up soon and safely!

Sheared the heads off the lug nuts, looks like. Truck came an hour early so we're in the shop now along with the most awesome tripod bc/cattle dog

New studs are like 2 bucks each. Lug nuts maybe a few bucks more per. Then the labor to pull them in (about 10 minutes with an impact gun). Should be well under 100 bucks to repair.

It would be nice to find out WHY they sheared off, though. Do you have some other suspension issue that caused so much vibration that the lugs sheared off?

Uh.. Phone pix of the tripod?!

Sorry that happened, that's actually kind of terrifying, glad you weren't hurt!
