I Want To Know How They Got Tightened In The First Place

More than likely by one of these "specialists".

I always said that you can train a monkey to turn a wrench. The reason good mechanics are hard to find is because of their diagnostic skills.

On the other hand, the internet is full of shit like this,


  1. Simple, use a crowsfoot wrench, Snap-On has them.


    1. I have some of those, from Snap On. Looking closely at the radii involved here, I don't think they would fit either. Look at the radius where the wheel fits over the hub and the one just outside of the lug nuts. I don't see any paint scrapes and I don't see any teeth marks on the lug nut cones facing outwards either. I'm thinking this one was staged.
      You never know though, I have run across some pretty clever idiots in my day.

  2. looks like the lugnut were

    looks like the lugnuts were put on backwards,don't know how

    they were tightened. get some visegrips an a cheater pipe

  3. I think Michigan doug nailed it, and while visegrips might work, I was going to suggest my pipe wrench.
