That beats the last best one I ever saw. One guy had the caliper bolt fall out, he then ran it over and punctured the tire and it then pierced the wheel

no actually it was a shop that took it off and put it back on they over torqued the top bolt and snapped it just inside the mount i didn't have the tool at the time to turn the caliper back in (I do now!!!) put new rotors on the rear too
