The thread might be warn off the bolts. have a look at them if it is just buy some new ones.

Or it might be that the bolts where not tight enough and they have worked there way loose.

id theyre alloys on a 106 then it might be you or the last person to fit the wheels has de-threaded the hub (which ive done myself) or not tightened them enough. but if i was you get it checked out and dont drive it in the meantime. get the AA or someone to come out and have a look, say youve got stuck i.e. not close to home and they should come out as youve "broken down"

I think its quite dangerous having the hubs tapped so the wheel bolts screw into them.

As said above, its very easy for them to become cross threaded. Once thats happened, youre pretty much knackered.
