Default Minor Panic: Source for Lug Nuts?

Somewhat to my alarm, when I went out to change over my wheels from Sunday's autocross tonight I found that I was missing a lug nut on a rear wheel. Maybe I should boost my torque settings or at least double-check after driving on them for a bit.

Anyway, what's the recommended source for some quick lug nuts?

You can try Hup Cap Heaven. They may stock some....not sure. I did get some through them when I bought a set of wheels and tires from them. Good luck.

Yeah, you gotta double check those lugs. I always torque them to 72ftlbs and go over them twice to make sure they all click right away. Then I go for a short drive and then go over them again. Usually a few of them are loose again, but once you tighten them up they'll be fine.
