    I mistakenly installed the wrong wheel locks on my car. The locks I got are 12 x 1.5 I presumed that my wheel bolts are the same. But it turns out that my bolts are 12 x 1.25. Not knowing my error, I forced the bolts in and 3 are installed but I know now that if I do have to removed them, the bolt threads of the three will be stripped and have to be replaced. The other remaining wheel, my front left, has a loose wheel lock (stripped thread on the nut and probably the bolt as well) and wonít come off. One of the other bolts is stripped as well. Can I safely use this for a week, until I got it fixed this weekend? I donít drive too fast naman and I travel about 10 kilometers a day.

    How much of a repair bill am I facing? Where can I have this done? Will this take time to do? Do I have to recamber my wheels after the repair?

    kung mahigpit naman ang nuts baka puede pa yan ng isang linggo kaya lang alalay lang talaga. anf takot ko lang baka bumigay habang nag mamaneho ka

    every morning tignan mo yung gulong at i-inspect mo yung nuts kung mahigpit pa

    nangyari na yan sa akin, i.e. ng loose thread ang bolt. i had to replace it with a new stud. madali lang naman at readily available ata ito.

    ingat pare:D

    madali lang yan....depending on the car. Sa honda you need to have it machine pressed. Yung sa mga trucks, its a simple 30 minute procedure (stud bolt replacement)

    hmm..naranasan ko na matanggalan ng bolt yung starex..dalawa na lang yung natira out of 5 or 6 bolts (gosh, d ko na maalala..deym)..
    pinalitan lang ng stud..
    nakalimutan ko na yung price ng stud..
    labor cost..zero..tito ko lang nagpalit..
    d naman mahirap..sandali lang nya ginawa.
