This is strange; I talked to a number of people, and nobody knows anyone, or knows anyone who heard of anyone who has ever lost a wheel while driving. At least in Germany. I can't recall a single case being reported in the newspapers. Maybe shop procedures are better over here.

Having a tyre fail is much more common, and almost everyone either had it happen to him or knows someone directly to whom it happened. Either complete (slow) deflation, explosive failure (rare) or losing parts of the tread (especially on retreaded tyres. Happened to my wife, and it was the last time we ever bought retreaded).

I heard of the Chrysler way (maybe some German manufacturers also did it?), but it just didn't seem to be worth the hassle because if tightened properly, wheel nuts just didn't fail.
