Yeah I am sooo irritated with all this. I think the biggest problem was the ignorance of the shop. The new people seem to know a little more.

In the picture where the wheel is shown the shop had already sheared off some of my studs and over torqued the procomp lugs which where bottoming out. Thats why we had to put the stock lugs back on.

my brother had problems with the lug nuts being too short with the ones that came with those same wheels, they had to torque them hard enough to bust thru the cap at the end because they were probably a quarter of an inch short.

Wow that's good to hear at least someone had a problem with them I felt left alone. And mine were not the kind that the top would bust out. But do you think that would cause my problem?

So I got tired of new shop never ready to work on truck so I said screw it and put the wheels on myself. Torqued down fine. Tightened in star patter as tight as I could by hand. I drove it around for a while. No bolts loosened and nothing was flexing like I was told.

So If I keep an eye on keeping the bolts tight, what could go wrong with these wheels. they seem fine buy my dad is a little mad I did it myself and says if something breaks he will sell the truck because I havnt paid off all the tires yet.
