    I'm a dumba$@ lol......

    So, I've been hearing this super odd noise at low low speeds, like backing out of the garage etc. For the life of me I couldn't figure it out, spent a lot of time going thru the rear of the truck looking for something, anything loose.

    Had my wife drive forward, backward, forward, backward, repeat and so on....

    I pinpointed the noise coming from the driver side rear tire area.....tgen it hit me, that light bulb switching on moment.

    I removed the lug nut cover from the brand new Lexani 24s I just installed, and low and behold, the lug nut key was loose inside haha!!

    I'm such a dumbass, lol!!

    That's an old trick. I'd be sure to check and torque the rest of them.

    It wasnt the lug nut itself, it was the key that is used to remove the locking lig lol. Apparently I just decided to leave it on when I finished installing the tires haha
