Question about 2003 Toyota Camry
An original dealer-supplied wheel lock nut on our 2001 Dodge Caravan shattered while the local Goodyear tech was attempting to rotate the tires. The shattered remnants of the lock nut could not be drilled out and resulted in an extensive repair that included a new wheel and new lug nut stem.
Goodyear had never seen this happen before, and while I was previously concerned with discouraging the theft of our wheels, the cost associated with the repair of a single wheel suggests that it may not be worth the risk of having this happen again, especially while travelling far from home.
We have saved the damaged parts which we intend to forward to the manufacturer.
Are you aware of any similar problems with wheel lock nuts that warrant concern by consumers?
