Here at the Legal Examiner, members have written about the need to check the lug nuts on your wheels after you buy tires. It's been pointed out :

If you get new tires, you should within a few days return to the garage to have the lug nuts re-tightened. That’s especially true if you have alloy or aluminum wheels. Under-tightening, working loose, failing to replace or over-tightening are all recognized problems with serious consequences.

It is the very first thing I think of when I came across stories of death or collisions caused by tires that come off vehicles. It is so sad when these real life examples have to be teaching moments. But, tires shouldn't just come off.

Please take the time to check your lug nuts and also while your at it, check the age of your tires.
