I know this may not be the place to post this, but since I was coming back from a Black Bear hunt, I figure this be the place to put this. So the story goes like this, after hunting a few days on the Willow side of Hatchers Pass, and not seeing anything, I was returning home when I notice my truck was not driving right. The brakes were acting pretty spongy. I was on the Parks Highway and pulled over to investigate the problem. I looked at the tires, underneath the truck, my trailer, and could not see anything out of the ordinary. I got back in my truck and as soon as I pulled back onto the Parks, I felt my front left side drop, and watched my front tire go rolling across the Parks, up a hill, then back down the hill, then into the ditch. I was able to quickly get off into the shoulder as best I could to get out of the way of traffic. I first went to retrieve my tire and rolled it back across the highway. I took a look at my wheel rotor, and noticed that a lug stem was completely gone and the rest of the stems had snapped in half. There was no way I was getting my tire back on to drive it safely. I started to walk down the Parks looking for my lugs and a very nice lady pulled over and asked me if I was looking for my lugs. I told her yes, and she said she happened to see them on the road and gave me a lift to go retrieve them. Very nice of her. So waiting for the tow truck, I saw six Troopers blasting by running lights and sirens. About 10 minutes later two of them stopped to help after returning from where they were hauling butt. I asked them where they were going in such a hurry, and he said they were chasing somebody. I told him what happened and he gave me some flares to get traffic to move over a little bit more. The other Trooper thought my buddy was crying because he face was red from being sun burned LOL!! After the tow guy showed up and loaded up my truck and hooked up my trailer we were off to the tire shop. The damage done wasnít as bad as I thought it was going to be. Ended up paying $180 bucks to the guys at Diversify Tire in Wasilla. They did a great job. Also busted my driverís side mirror, but got that fixed for $45 at Speedy Glass. Guys a Diversify said my lugs were loose and not torqued. Just got new tires on the truck a little over a month ago, and never noticed anything out of the ordinary while driving it. They checked all the lugs on the truck and said only a few were tight and the rest loose. I called the tire company that put the new tires on to tell them what happened, and to make sure their employees are torqueing their customers tires. The manager told me that it is probably someone messing with my lugs because I would have noticed right away if the lugs werenít tight when I first got the tires on. I am just thankful nobody got hurt, my truck, trailer and quads didnít get trashed and the repair was very minimal. My wife blames the tire company and wanted them to pay for the damage, but I am not sure if they are to blame or if someone was messing with my lugs or it was just a freak accident. She told me, after I called her about the accident, that the truck was acting weird and the brakes were spongy on Friday when she last drove it. Wish she would have said something before I took off this weekend. If someone did mess with my lugs, I believe in Karma, and you will get yours ten fold, what comes around goes around. You could have caused a serious accident and put some lives at risk. Donít know anyone who would try to sabotage my truck, donít have any enemies. I also want to say this PLEASE SLOW DOWN WHEN DRIVING BY A VECHILE BROKEN DOWN ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD!!!! People on the Parks were 2 feet from the tow driver and speeding like it was the Indy 500. When there are flares and hazard lights on, that usually is a good indication to pay attention and to slowdown. Also of all the people that passed me by, only two offered to stop for help, and they were women in their mid-sixties!!! Has America changed that much in the last 5 years?? Come on people, let us stop once in a while and help out are fellow man. Lesson learned though. For now on, I will be checking my lug nuts more often than I had before. Safe travels everyone.
