I've owned my '89 XR-7 since new. There was a recall on the lugnuts, shortly after I bought it. The Ford dealer told me that the recall was because the original lug nuts had the wrong taper on them. I didn't have a problem with the original lugnuts (right or wrong). The Ford dealer changed all of them for free, so I didn't give the wrong taper much thought..................Until now!

Are those Mag Wheel lugnuts? Looks like the wheel was spider walking & hogged out the lug holes.

well those lugnuts are from some cheap/heavy ~~~ , chrome rims the car had , it never ocurred to me that i had to swap them.

they conical in the end they hold the wheel , that and the overtorquing that commonly shops do in this cars is what must have damaged the wheel.

update i just went and checked all my wheels most are starting to look the same :mad:

i think i may be visiting some jy's soon.
