Lug nuts only hold the wheel to the hub.
If your lug nuts keep coming loose either the wheel is not sitting flush against the hub when tightened or they are not being torqued properly.
Be sure the wheel goes snuggly against the hub with no bindind, if there is binding clean the wheel hub with emery cloth and brake cleaner and then coat the hub to wheel area with Anti-Seize lube.
Once you know the wheel is sitting flush against the hub handtighten all lug nuts then torque the lug nuts to 100 FT LBS using a torque wrench.
If you are using an impact gun you can use a Torque Stick.
Lugs need to be tighten in a clockwise manner skipping every other lug as you go so the wheel seats evenly until all 5 are torqued.
You can get a Click Type FT LB Torque Wrench at Autozone in their Loan A Tools.
