Hey, guess what stupid thing I did today.

So, after rotating my tires (and finding out I had yet another nail embedded in my tire), I noticed some vibration. Brushing it off and thinking it would settle, I go to the store and head home. The vibration worsens.. up to the point that it's vibrating more than a Motel 8 bed. I'm like, this can't be good, I should get this checked. I turned town my music and I kept hearing a click click click noise in my back right. Soo, I pull over only to discover I FORGOT TO TORQUE THE LAST TIRE. !Notfunny!

... so, after basically pulling off metal string from the center of my rim, I put the tire back on and tightened it. God where is my head today.

Well good thing only the rim took some slight damage. It could've been worse.

This probably doesnt look too good being my first post but me and a friend of mine were replacing his brake pads on his grand cherokee and on his way home his brakes were still squeeking it was actually kind of worse so we take off the wheel and oh yeah it helps if you torque the bolts on the calipers because it fell off right when we took the tire off .

Yea, that once happened to me. Was driving along after changing to a new set of tires. Car started vibrating and wobbling. Thought I must of failed to tighten the back rims. Pulled over and got out. Could barely stand up. Thought I was dizzy...

Then I realized it was an earthquake (loma prieta 1989).
