people should read about k/o's before they put them on and put themselves as well as other people in danger :uh:

Thats why, the red is the right side and the left is white.....you have to make sure they are that way because they are reverse threaded on each side...that way, they arent loosening themselves when you take off.

I always tighten them after driving for awhile as well.

Maybe the wire wheel companies should stamp them in big letters so that folks won't get confused. Then maybe the rest of us could rest easy next time we see another rider rolling toward us with wires.

Forone, you got your adapters on the wrong sides like the homies up there sed. Two, you are reccomended to tighten them securely, then tighten them agen after about 50 miles of riding. Its good to check em every 500 miles after that. I remember when i first put mine on, shit was wrking fine, then I started to apply some brakes and I heard a knocking and I kew shit wasnt right. Pulled over to the side of the road tightened the wheel and shit was fine.
