things snapping left and right!

FIRST, my antenna snaps off (which btw i still havent fixed and am having some trouble with the drill out because i dont have a slow enough drill)... and NOW one of my lugnuts snapped off when i was putting my wheel back on!!!

NOW wtf am I supposed to do?!?! is it safe to drive with just four on?? How much will it cost for a new lugnut?! where can I get just one?! confused

You should be safe to drive on it for only a little bit. I wouldnt recommend it. Im pretty sure they sell lug nuts at kragen or any autoparts store.

thanks guys... im going to car parts right now. ive got some friends there who might be able to let me use thier tools. im gunna try the whole drill out thing like with the antenna. maybe they have a slow enough drill there. and yeah my car does suck lol but im very superstitious and just realized its the 13th, so im blaming it on that. thumbsup

how tight does everyone put thier lugnuts back on and how do you know when its enough? cause when i do mine it never seems like it is enough, maybe its just me. and i probably did it too tight and it just snapped right off... wtf

I just tighten each one with the wrench and then lower the car and give each nut one more good 1/4 turn. Never had any problems.
