I didn't have any lug nuts for my 2 front rims so I decided to use JB weld on my lug threads to hold rims on....I have taken it down interstate with a little bit of wobble not much. How long will it last

 

Thanks

You can buy a full set of chrome plated acorn lugs for 40 bucks. Individual nuts about a dollar any auto parts store. I really hope this is a joke. Otherwise a flat tire will make you feel very silly soon.

I think that's nuts Scared  

you should have your license taken away for this and the e-brake delete thing.

ditto.

Too dangerous to even city drive that car. Not only your life, but you may risk other people’s lives.

That is dangerous and not worth risking:  sounds like an episode of Top Gear but that is on a controlled course.  I would follow Thumpy’s recommendation as soon as possible.

The idea that innocent people could die or become disabled (when the wheel literally falls off in traffic) because of this choice of yours is terrifying. It's a profoundly irresponsible and unethical act. And, of course, if someone does die, a criminal charge of vehicular manslaughter will likely be filed, claiming willful indifference and negligence. A civil suit would follow.

Rethink your choice. Save a life. Save yourself.

I certainly hope myself/a near or dear one isn’t around the vicinity of this guy’s vehicle..

I correlate this "JB Weld" disposition with attitudes toward the COVID-19 vaccines. It would not surprise me if this indifference to human life was matched with a disinclination toward vaccination.

You might be on to something there..

I don't think you should have a licence.

When the wheel(s) fall off and kill someone, you'll be going to jail and rightly so.

I deleted My E brake and used JB weld on all rims...went down interstate at 100mph...no problem at all..

show photos or I don't believe you

Do you also use cling wrap instead of a windshield?

@Brendon Terry Things never happen until they happen and you will be sorry for rest of your life. Do not spread dangerous acts.
