So I took your advice avie and on the way home from school today I picked up a set of locking lug nuts. I didnt worry about buying a whole new set of lug nuts. There are 2 lug nuts that are missing their chrome caps, so I will just replace those with the locking nut for each wheel.

Do gas companies do winter blend gas where you live? If they do, that's probably the cuplrit.


the car is looking good It'll definitely look better with some low when you get the opportunity to do that.
