    Every wheel is like that.


    Any one have a clue why? Would there be any adverse effects because of it?

    Umm.. there should be 4.. Maybe they lost the lugs on one wheel so took 1 from each of the other 3. ;) I have seen 3 lug wheels, but they are equally spaced and designed to only have 3.

    Locking nuts, lost the key... it was 'removed'


    Any one know of any adverse effectr form it running on those?

    EDIT: also, they are Konig rims... can any one identify which ones they are? (like what type of Konigs) They are 17" and have the universal 8 bolt pattern

    This was dealer fault.

    The car was not traded in with the keys

    And the rest of the story is kinda irrelevant.

    but regardless, i found what i think is those rims:
