My Wheel fell off -
That's right. My wheel fell off Sat. morning on the way to the autofair. Luckily there was, some how, minimal damage done to my car. The rotor did mess up the inside of my wheel but I think I can have it machined smoother.
If any one was on 52 South at 6am yesterday right before it runs into 85, that was me on the side of the road with my Tri-Pod,lol.

(the title is funnier if you've heard Ron White talk about Sears Tire)

Sorry to hear that, at least there was only minimal damage and the best part that no one was injured. When we heard that you where still coming to Autofair after that happened all I could think of was "this guy is a true diehard".
BTW congrats on the award.

Yikes!!! Glad you are ok. I have had that happen to me, also...So did the wheel just take-off in one direction or did it stay inside the wheel well?

It stayed in the wheel well and then it flew out. Only took off a little paint inside the wheel well and scratched up the wheel on the inside and bent my studs. Put it on a roll back and brought it back home. Changed out the studs, balanced the wheel and finally got to the speedway at 1pm.
