Why should you retighten the wheel nuts 50-100 kilometres after a change of wheels?

After a change of wheels it is important to retighten the wheel nuts when you have driven about 50-100 kilometres. Otherwise you risk a wheel nut or an entire wheel coming loose during travel.

This is especially important to remember if your wheel rims are alloy (light metal). Note that such rims should be tightened with a special torque wrench to avoid damaging them.
