I'm counting my blessings that I don't have a stuck lug nut that's just spinning and spinning, I just don't have a lug nut on that stud. I'm not a mechanical person, so just to make it easier I took it to a local...

    Hi everyone - I'm new to the forum! Joined to ask the collective wisdom here on what would be the best thing I could do for my baby now that he's hitting 100k miles.
