Infamous Lug Problem
I was checking torque on my MKC, got one new tire so decided to check all, and one of the lugs was screwed up. It was not on the new tire so who knows when it was done, I got it with 26,000 miles on it. My questions:
1. What is the best way to get the damaged lug off? I tried to smooth out the edges and think I have it where I could drive a 19MM socket on in case I have a flat but would only do that in an emergency.
2. What is a good lug, manufacturer and part #, to replace the OEMs with and how do I make sure it is a one piece and sturdy? I see a lot of them on Amazon but want to make sure I get a good one.
