    QuestionQuestion About Wheel Lugs....

    The '02 Deville has 5 lugs on each wheel. I have been driving for about 8 months now with only 4 on my front left wheel. Now I hear this ticking noise from that wheel in addition to the swaying from a previous post (which mechanics say are my tires, which I'm getting this weekend). I always thought that it wouldn't harm the ride. Does anyone know if that will have a negative affect on the ride.

    It will affect the wheel balance. I'm not sure what the ticking noise would be from though.

    GM designed the car with five, using less than that is a problem.

    Sounds like you need a driveaxle too, regardless get that lugnut/stud repaired or if necessary replaced, and get the car inspected.
