Unhappy So if This Aint Some Baby Back Bullslip..

Pissed. Passenger side front tire literallly SNAPPED off all four lug axels. Clean off. Car sunk so low it snapped the fender and shoved it above the winsheild, tearing it. Not to mention the car was sitting of the brakedisc/hub asembely. and the guy that came to tow it made my cobalt so much worse hes paying for a new bumper out of pocket. Im told i wont have my cobalt for 2 and a half weeks!

man i miss my cobalt

thankfully i had turned into my driveway. i had been driving all day even on the thruway. and by some crazy luck nothing snapped untill i got home. Yes normal driving maybe like 5mph. Its crazy there were no warning signs all day. And the dealership got out of the warranty saying they were put on to tight. but i know for a fact they werent. The only thing that stopped me from completly snapping was knowing it happened at home not on a highway haha.. i woulda flipped shit

Did you do the post wheel install retorque? If so sounds like someone may have tried to steall the rims, and got scared and left after busting the torque on the rims.
