How??? By telling him to torque a nut and washer down tight enough to bring the offending lug(s) into alignment?? Not only will that serve to elongate the hole in the hub but it will stretch the lug and weaken it. So.... if Jay follows Street Beast's el-cheapo method one of these days he could be cruising down the road and have a lug or lugs break which could easily cause a rim to separate from the car, possibly at speed.

The good news is that Street Beast's solution to this problem has now been documented, and if something like that happens Jay's lawyers will have plenty of undisputed evidence that Street Beast told him to use an unsafe procedure to correct a simple defect in their kit.

Way to go!
