Re: safe to drive with only 3 outa 4 lugs?

yeah its safe. just make sure the remaining 3 are good and tight. might be wise to actually torque them. i'm driving on 4 of 5 on mine. just took a 1k mile round trip and didn't have a problem. every time i stopped for gas i checked to make sure they were still tight.
