That's a great argument for Anti-Seize and properly torquing the lugs....

Hell no, I'll put it together dry and use a 6 foot cheater bar on the wrench just to make sure they stay tight.

I enjoy collecting special/event items in games (hence me pre-ordering etc). I'm willing to pay again for the game

I guess it never crossed his mind to drill the lug out before cutting the rim into pieces.

it looks like he did everything possible. i mean drilling and tapping it, couldn't fit an easy out because of the broken tap... you can't drill a titanium tap, you have to shatter it. Only thing I can think of is welding an extension, but that would be hard anyways. Personally i don't think he was left with much of a choice. He could have snapped the bolt clean off, that would have been the best way...

I would soak it with penetrating oil, drive a cold chisel in there, and get on the end of it with a breaker bar.
