Did you tap the lip of the nut into the indent on the axle?

I have had lots of friends that had wheels fall off because they used the same nut again. I replace the nut each time I take it off and have never had a problem.

usually only the left sides will do it, front and rear.

you really have to hold the hub still with a bar when impacting the nut on, and use a good impact gun.

I also put and extra groove in the stub axle ( with a die grinder) and peened the original nut over in two spots now, no issues and no locktite even though it is a good idea to do.

i have zero issues with my front hub nuts and i only use blue loctite and dont peen the nut over.

how do you "un-peen" an axle nut? i had one a while ago on my rzr that was a MF and i had to cut the nut in half to get if off. i tried with every screw driver and punch i had.

I have a small punch I ground for that exact purpose, it fits in the groove and I hammer the peen mostly out then remove with impact gun.

also if you swap axle nuts from one stub to another, you can sometimes get a new spot to peen over.

I have tried new nuts have tighted them well and pinged them per manual, still had issues, the best thing i have found so far is the posilocks being made by tonystoys. They are a ring that goes over the axle nut and is clamped down by the wheel where the axle nut can not come off.

X2...........I have never had one fall off my rhino(yet). I also have a punch that I ground down to peel the tab back off.....usually just breaks it off, but I put a new one on each time so no worries. Do you torque yours, or just use an impact? I torque mine each time also. Maybe I have just been lucky though.
