    I think a guy I used to hang with is going through this right now with his Goat. He keeps snapping studs. Oh well...the guy's a doosh anyway.

    I never thought about that.......like I said I've had no problems for over two years, but never used an impact on mine and always have tighten and torque them......guess that could be what has saved me.
    has anyone here used the old (slot style) rims like the old Crager SS's?

    my 255/50/17 Hankooks have kept me happy for the last year. Im not doing anything crazy but im a fairly aggressive driver. theyve got 12-15k on them, atleast 3/4 tread left. grip just as well in the rain.

    if its wet and i step on it, its easier to get loose, but i never lose grip around corners or anything if i dont intend too

    but then again, i dont need nearly the performance some of you guys do
