    Question Lug Nuts Gone, Rim Is Damaged Pretty Bad. Still Safe?

    Hello all!

    Few weeks ago I was super excited to get my new Maxxis RAZR's. I had a dealer put them on the rims for me but I put the finished product on my 2001 Raptor 660. The night before I partied with a few friends, a little too hard than I probably should have. Long story short when I put the wheels on I was pretty tired. I hand wrenched the lug nuts on as tight as I could but apparently it wasn't enough for the rear left. I was riding today and noticed that tire was wobbling although I didn't feel it since I was on dirt. I immediately drove home to check it out. I kicked the wheel a bit and it was loose I checked out the rim where the nuts once were and they were gone. I was left with the rims and a big line on each hole where the lugs slide in. I don't know how to explain it any better so heres a pic. SSN5475.jpgSSN5475.jpg All I ask is that if I put brand new lug nuts on will it be safe to operate? Thanks!
