And talking of loose lug/wheel nuts.When I was a kid (in the 60's) we were overtaken by our offside rear when going down a steep hill.
We had a teacher at school called 'Lumpy' (that may not have been his real name) who was so fat, his offside rear used to overtake him as he ran down the stairs.

Perhaps it was used as his warp drive displacing space/time? ;D

They're only rounded on one side. The other side is a hex so you use the lug wrench (or tire wrench).

'Co-exist in harmony with the flow of reality' is my perception of abide. Cheers Dudes!
