Cars can be really dangerous when they are not correctly assembled. A wheel coming off at speed is not funny.
Funny you should say that, when i got my new rims i took them to a local workshop under recommendation from a friend to put them on, four hours later after 2 phone calls (he said he was trying to be careful to not scratch the rims) I picked up the car and noticed a wobble

I had a look and the front wheel was so loose it was tracking off to the left and vibrating at a severe angle, which was not good as that day i drove it to Penrith down a road called Old bathurst road which is extremely step and windy.. He's closed down now no wonder !
