Went on a ride tonight and this ended up happening. Brand new lugs and brand new wheels. Planned on checking them next week before mud nats but I was too late.

Last month I was on my CanAm doing 90kph then slowed to about 50kph to take a turn when my rear suspension went real plush and then I noticed my rear wheel overtaking me. Love my Elka 4's didn't even realize I lost a wheel till it hit a tree 20m in front of me. Only time I didn't use a impact driver to do up wheel lugs. Cheers

Yeah I didn't use one either. The lugs kinda messed up the wholes in my wheels so they are a little bigger then they should be. Hope I don't have to buy another one

I've got a 2014 Viking, used from a dealer, I know there were some wheel changes made. The previous owner traded it in for a Viking VI, he wanted the wheels from the Viking put on his new Viking VI. I just took it in today for a safety recall on the rear wheels, they said the chamfer around the lug holes was wrong causing the wheels to loosen up. I took the wheels off and ran just them up to the dealer for a change. The drivers side rear was barely wrench tight when I removed it.

Good timing
