    Wheel keeps coming loose

    Ok, so for the past week or so my front right wheel keeps coming loose after a short run. I tighten the nut, but it comes loose again in short order... Is this typically just a bad nut, or is it something else I need to replace? I have MIP cvd's in front, if that makes a difference.

    Thanks!

    Put a drop of blue loctite on the wheel shaft, that solved the problems for my rears with MIP CVDS

    The nuts only work so well once that plastic filler has been worn away. Loctite them and let it sit for a few hours or overnight. That should keep them on.

    Always use new nuts it stop them from losing grip and let the loctite dry as slaugter33 said and you should be good to go..peace
