Always give your ko's a couple hits with your hammer to make sure they are on tight every time you drive your car.

probably just weren't hit on tight enough the first time, ive rode on spokes everyday for over a year no problems, took the ride on 2 hours drives, and 3 hour drives out of town with no problems at all. Just get them tight and check them every once in a while

lift the car, then try to tighten
I've been rollin k-offs for 2 yrs now and no problems even in winter, doin massive burnouts in the snow and i never had any problems other than all 100 spokes getting loose on one wheel. I rarely check for tightness.

:uh: man i would rather roll bolt-on's than have to check them everytime i drive the car. That's just rediculous. I can't imagine how tore up the knockoffs/tool/and hammer would get from doing that. Tighten them one good time, roll for about 20 miles, then re-check and you should be good to roll until you take the wheel off again.
