Well last night i was riding along on a trail and went over a rocky section when all of a sudden my right rear dropped down alot... thought to my self **** i got a flat... i get off the quad with my flashlight in hand and relize i dont even have a back tire or wheel on... I was worried cause i didnt know how far the wheel could have rolled, luckily it was like 10 feet behind me... Closer examination i see that 2 of the wheel studs are intack but 2 are sheared right off. So what i need help with is this, It appears the nuts that hold on the wheel have come loose in riding, and when 2 of the came off it allowed play with the other 2 and wore like 1/4" of the 2 holes out of round. They are SS108 black wheels, you know if they are under warrenty for that or if i can get them welded, also a price and where to get the piece with the 4 wheel studs for the rear axel would be great, any more clearification just let me know.

I think you can buy just the wheel studs or if you buy a new rear hub it will come with the studs.I would also buy a new wheel and make sure you use a torque wrench when tightening the lug nuts.Better check your other wheels too!

Hate to have to buy a new wheel since these are only like 2 weeks old... Was wondering if anyone would know about getting them welded and re drilled.

maybe take them to a machine shop they can probably fill in the bad holes and redrill them for cheaper than buying a new wheel

Should just get a new wheel , it will never be the same , welded re-drilled , i certainly wouldn't trust it at all !!!! IMO. ur just asking for more problems , also don't forget who may get injured or even worst , w/ wheel tire flying off !!! Cheap price to pay to avoid a serious injury ** ... Torque ur Nuts next time !! I think you got away pretty cheap

Yeah i already ordered a new wheel and ITP just wrote back to me and asked to send a picture to them, they said most likely they will warrenty it. So i might have an extra good rear wheel for back up. I torqued them real good when i had them on but they still seemed to back out so this time its Loc-tite on all of them.

I assume that your using the correct lug nuts for the ITP wheels and not the stock ones.

I know that the lugs on new alum wheels should be checked soon after installation as the wheel and lugs settle in or "seat". Can't understand why yours won't stay tight after this.
I picked up a cheap 17mm socket , 12" extension and breaker bar to carry on the bike. So far no problems with the SS wheels.
Let us know how you make out with the warranty.
