Wheel lug nuts are like bass guitarists: very important but usually overlooked. They hold wheels in place. That's as important a job as the guy who cleans nuclear station switches without pressing any buttons. But there's a trick to tightening lug nuts.

This should be a helpful guide to keep your nuts tight and in place.
