When I went to put my 17X9's on yesterday the very first lug nut I tried to take off felt very strange. It was tight, in fact too tight. Then I noticed it didn't look exactly straight :mad: I actually thought the stud might break before it came off, but it didn't. It was crossthreaded and completely boogered up the threads of the nut and stud :mad: It looks like the jammed the nut full of JB Weld and impacted it on to ship it.

I don't know whether to take it back to the dealer and let them fix it, or just eat it and do it myself. It's clearly Ford's responsibility, but I don't know if I want my car sitting at a dealer's shop having who know what gorilla working on my car.

I'd be p*ssed. Then I'd show it to the dealer and make them give me the parts, so I could fix it myself.

I'm going to figure out how to do an awful lot of work on this car 'cause I don't have the nerve to let Ford's factory-tormented techs touch it.
