Put that together well then.
LOL @ him just looking at it rolling alongside him.
I don't get that, if the studs were loose it'd be vibrating like buggery before it came off.
Plus Helmet and Screen = Woman.
I wound the video back looking for a wobbly steering wheel, seems odd to me
Lucky tbh, could've been a lot worse on a road like that!
He claims wheel studs fell out moments after a slight wheel wobble. No damage to speak of though so very lucky whatever caused it.
That could have been very nasty indeed!
Lol@using the 'windscreen' wipers.
I know the feeling of watching you wheel roll away lol!
Very lucky though, could have been much worse
Good job he wasn't going any faster really.
Very lucky indeed.
Hello, this is me in the video, I found this topic after googling to show a friend what happened...
It was factory built and is looked after and maintained very well. The wheels had been balanced the previous day, and they obviously hadn't tightened the nuts on that wheel properly.
As you can see on the video if you look at the steering wheel, there was no real vibration, just a slight wobble like a wheel weight had fallen off...
And I'm sure you can forgive me the helmet; it was bloody snowing!!! Plus it's a pretty dangerous road so I'd rather be thought of as a 'women' than end up dead!
Overall very lucky, and if me putting this video online makes just one person check their wheel nuts and stop this from happening to them then it was worth it.
I had a garage that accidentally fitted the wrong wheel bolts the day before a trackday, the wheel worked its way loose on track. Very scary!
Hope you don't mind me reposting the video.
I've felt a wheel wobble before, stopped, and found my wheel to be held in by two bolts that were almost wound all the way out. Since then I've been pretty careful with tightening bolts...
Lol at the wheel rolling along side the car.
I have to say, that is a rather funny video. Loose the screen though
He wasn't holding it?
Most of the wheel/tyre places I've been to always give you a reminder to check the bolts over the next few days as a caveat for something like this happening.
Glad to hear no real damage was done and it happened at such a slow speed!
