[Healeys] Wheel Spinners

...you're probably not tightening them enough in the first place & they're just doing what they're supposed to. I give mine a hell of a lot more than a couple of light taps!

Try it with the car raised from ground, much easier that way. Btw. I also only tighten them by hand and one or two blows with a rubber mallet, no point in tightening them any more than that.

  On my BJ8 with new MWS 72 spoke WW and hubs I find that the wheels are over tightening themselves particularly the front.
  Have read the Rudge Whitworth self tightening info. but still not happy.
  When I fit the wheels I tighten by hand then do a light couple of taps with my lead mallet.
  After but a few miles I find that I have to really slog the spinners just to get them to move - the ol’ girl shakes all over.
  It really is excessive and fear one day wont be able to get them to move at all – particularly on roadside.
  What gives ?
  Anyone else encountered this issue ?
