What is the affect of missing a lugnut on the balance of a wheel? Lots or little? I seem to be able to feel it over 75 or so, one of my studs broke off and I dont have a lugnut there, would it cause enough imbalance to feel it?

It shouldn't. The farther out from the center of the axle you get, the more pronounced it will be. It will make a slight difference. If you can't get to change the stud you can always have the tires balanced on the car as a temporary cure.

I can get it off, just wondering if I should feel it, Its only noticeable if i go *fast*, and shouldnt bother me unless I go like the speed limit or something. I plan to put in a new stud later this week, just wanted to know how much it affects me
