Well, last year I changed my wheels for a while. Not long after, I was carving down an incline and my tail slipped on a wet spot and I inadvertently did a little slide. Unfortunately the net broke off on one axle and the wheel came off and the axle kind of ground to a halt on the asphalt. I was about half a block from home and I dumbly attempted to make it back with the wheel loosely on the truck. Obviously it came off a couple times on the way and probably ground down those threads even more. I replaces the nut and it seemed like it was working okay, but this week I changed the wheels again and went out for a very short ride ending in the nut coming off. Now I'm thinking the axle threads are just too wrecked to put another nut on there. My question is, is there any way to fix this or am I better of just replacing the truck? I don't think this is a problem of the threads being bent out of shape or anything like that, but just actually grinded off. I tried to take some pictures here they are: [img:1k04m54p]http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f310/cheamo/IMG_0374.jpg[/img:1k04m54p] [img:1k04m54p]http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f310/cheamo/IMG_0378.jpg[/img:1k04m54p]

You could try taking a tap and die set to clean the threads. Could work, just give it a good test before you start going anywhere too far from home.

Get something sturdy and built well, that will last a while, at least 150,000 miles, and gets good highway mileage. :idea:
