What are Lug Nuts & How Important are they?

January 22nd, 2010

Lug nuts are specific nuts that are used to secure a wheel on a vehicle. They actually play a very important part of connecting your wheels or rims to your vehicle by fastening to the wheel studs. It is very dangerous to drive with loose, corroded, or missing lug nuts.

Some people may think by driving with a few missing lug nuts everything will be okay, but in reality it not only  endangers the life of the driver and passengers, but also other people on the road. Loose or missing lug nuts can eventually lead to the loss of a wheel or rim while driving. Just imagine if you have 5 lug nuts and you are missing 1, thats 20% less safe. So remember to replace any missing lug nuts as soon as you notice they are missing.
