New C36 outta wack!!!!

Hey guys,
Just bought my second c36, this one was a bit cheaper than the last. The previous owner had new rims put on it at some b/s shop and for some reason he said he lost his back left wheel while driving. "All five lugs just mysteriously gave out" haha. He was able to get everything back in order minus some cosmetic damage, and then he went to reverse outta his driveway with his e- brake on, and it sounded like something popped outta place. Ever since, there has been this horrible pressure on about 1/4 of that exact wheel while in rotation....... I personally haven't been near the car due to work travel. Any of you benz heads got any ideas on wtf it could be?

Maybe when he put the new wheels on, he didn't put the proper wheel bolts on. The new wheels may require longer bolts or bolts with a different shoulder. If he used the original bolts, they may not have threaded in far enough, causing them to come out and the wheel to fall off. Sorry, I can't help you with the second problem.
