bingo!! and ya know i thought about that yesterday and didnt tighten them... i lost 1 lug and the rest were not far from coming off... i wonder how they got so loose when the other 3 tires are so damn tight...
now as far as the lug goes... do i need to have one sent from enkei to work for the rims? or just buy a new set from an auto parts store??

Just buy new spline drive lug nuts (assuming you needed tuner wheel lug nuts), you should be able to get one at a tire store, or if not for some reason, a pack of American Racing lugs is around $10 unless you order them from Ford for $100, lol...

1) Someone wants to kill you but have it be an "accident"
2) Someone was thinking of stealing your wheels then chickened out
3) Not properly re-torqued a few days after the last time you had the wheel off. You should always re-torque the lug nuts after about 100-250 miles when you've had a wheel off.
