Q: Wheel fell off car

asked by on

The front driver's side wheel fell off.

Hi. It sounds like your lug nuts came loose and caused the wheel to fall off. I would recommend having a technician come out from YourMechanic and inspect the front end on the car for damage and repair it as needed. Also, the mechanic can tighten the lug nuts to make sure this type of situation never happens again.
