#1920: Crushed Cans and Loose Lug Nuts

May 18, 2019
This week on The Best of Car Talk, two matters of life and death. Jose may have done serious damage to a wheel but doesn’t want to pay a dealer to find out if it’s on the verge of falling off. Elsewhere, Kris may kill her husband if he continues to crush cans for recycling by driving over them. Also, Jason is pouring gas into the carburetor to get his truck to start, but may be better off just pouring gas on to the seats; Rebecca inherited her ex-boyfriend’s BMW, complete with annoying rubbing noise; and John’s maple sugaring trip ended with him spilling 5 gallons of syrup in his car. Anyone got pancakes to help soak it up? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
