    Lugnuts

    Sorry for double posting this but since this is a safety issue I need to get everyone's opinion.

    Are these on backwards? I know it's usually tapered side in but since the holes aren't tapered I've read the should be turned around so the flat side is down. The seem to be digging in a bit so maybe a washer is required? They are at 75 ft/lbs now.



    I'll risk looking foolish here if it prevents an accident. Thanks,

    Yep Dexstar says the same thing. Hope I didn't screw up the wheel.

    Well wheels are trashed. That was an expensive mistake.
