Default Stripped wheels

This is starting to upset me... I have gone through 6 wheels in half a season with the hex stripping out on me. I have had to remount tires a couple times, and now I have a bunch that need to get done again. I was using AKA premounts, this last set was some jconcepts wheels.... and the same thing is happening. The wheel nuts are tight, I've been checking before every race... but I just pulled one off, and it was all stripped out.

Any recommendations or ideas how I can stop this?

I am guessing you are talking offroad so you may want to post your question over there.

Yeah, sigh, I realized I mis-clicked the forum.

Check the hex hub on the axle. What it could be is that the edges on the hex hub have rounds itself thus causing the wheel hex to not sit properly. Not matter how tight you put the wheel nut, the tire will eventually spin itself because the hub is not gripping the wheel. Had this happen with my onroad car and once I replace the hex hub, the problem stopped.
