Watch A Dumbass Literally Drive The Wheel Off A 240SX

In a very real way, I hope this video was staged. If it’s not, then this has to be the most crappily-installed wheel since the Enlightenment. Were they using lug nuts, or just shouting the word “LUG NUT” to each stud? That poor 240SX.


Here, go ahead and watch. The wheel falls off twice: first, unseen, as some wet parking lot donuts are being enjoyed, and then again at about 1:55 in. That one’s more fun to watch:

Was that just one hand-tightened lug nut they used on that? Is that what I saw?

Also, protip: if you only have one wiper blade, stick it on the driver’s side.

sm70- why not Duesenberg?

Weird, since everyone in that video seems thoroughly competent, careful, and generally intelligent. I guess this just goes to show you that freak accidents can occur to the best of us no matter how many precautions you take.
