without removing and putting back the old wheels, what can cause this? No brake lights are such is on. TIA

Default Let me guess - you have 2 sets of wheels but only 1 set of wheel bolts, correct?

What they said!

Default 3rd. I chuckle every time I see one of these posts.

It seems like once every few months.

botls are too long, or the wheels are hitting the caliper on the top or face.

Default LOL...after checking things out, I managed to install all 4 wheels with goo from tire label facing

floor. Didn't know those glue were that sticky. Think I literally glue my car to the floor. Earlier, I tried to inch my way off so it wouldn't move. Gave some gas and off it went. Seems to drive fine now. So embarrassing!!!
