A few of the guys in duck camp drive the Yamaha Rhino's and Vikings. The Rhino's have aggressive mud tires and are wallowing out the holes for the lug nuts, casing them to come loose. The Vikings have factory tires and are doing the same. The manual stated that after 20 hours, the lugs needed to be tightened. Anyone else heard of these units doing this?

I know I should, but haven't put a wrench to my ranger crews lugs.

I've got SEVERAL riding buddies with Rhinos but none of them have ever mentioned that problem.

I thought it was pretty odd for this to happen. The Rhino has aluminum rims and the holes are now oblong, due to the lug nuts working their way loose while riding.

It wouldn't surprise me if the manual spec's a re-torque at 20 hours, but not every 20 hours. We advise our dealers/customers to re-torque their trailer lugnuts at 100 miles, and again at 500 miles.....then repeat that sequence anytime the wheel is removed for service.
