View Full Version : Spare wheel?

Well, I take it most has seen the video of my poor car. Not as bad as everyone during that weekend with their mishap (WTF is up with that??). It still stings the pocket book.



I only got them to fix the mounting holes as that is the most important part. I'll prob be ordering one later and keep the this as a spare :banghead:
(This is the cheapest to fix so far)

Still need $$ for body work and suspension work :thumbsdow

Racing fund donations accepted :angel:

Fortunately, the body wasn't TOO bad. Folded that panel pretty good, but it could have been a lot worse.

What exactly happened? Did u have your lugs to tight and that streched them and weakened them?

Check the photo / Video section.

No, I didn't over torque the lugs (torque wrench) and yes they were tighten before I left (I check twice before I left).

One of those :dunno: . Thank gawd it was at a slow speed when the wheel flew past me.

Camber is messed, Toe is bit off, right hub is lightly damaged, fender flares... Damage doesn't seem to be that bad...

did you talk to Dodge about the problem? They should be taking responsibility for what happened to you.

Link Fixed - No body pictures yet. A little too hot outside.

Yup, that's the good thing. Heck, I was surprised I could even still race that weekend :thumbsup:

Took most of the parts off the car and amazingly nothing really bad except the hub shows some damage and ofcourse alignment is pretty off.

Need to replace the Sway bar bolts and few other minor things but nothing crazy. I'll take pics when I get the chance.

buh_buh: I just talked to my rep in Toronto (Dealerships are a waste of time unless your buddies with the GM) and he's looking into it.

Redlyne_mr2:The wheel is no longer being produced. Your Best Bet is to try Tirerack.com or Talontire.com.

Local: They say the can get it but they won't deliver so your best bet is the internet.
