Well, Id kind of argue that one too, but I can understand the logic. If
lug nuts came loose there are other things to blame instead of the
quantity. Hell, Real race cars only have 1. :)

Ive had wheels fall off twice before actually, and the funny thing is,
they were still attached to the hub and brakes (and in one case
halfshaft). The lugs were still attached... :)
