Re: Why my lug nuts backing off?

Did you re-torque the lug nuts after driving it for a few miles?

Re: Why my lug nuts backing off?

Assuming you didn't change the wheels or lugnuts when you did the brake job, the only reason lugnuts would come loose like that is if they weren't torqued down properly.

I'm not saying you did or didn't do this... but that's usually the cause.

Re: Why my lug nuts backing off?

Do you have the original wheels and lugnuts on the vehicle?

Re: Why my lug nuts backing off?

You did put new brake rotors on, did they fit perfectly? Do all 4 wheel lug nuts come loose, or only one?
