Need help with lug nuts!
 
Well so i buy the rims I like, to find out that only a 15 mm socket will actually fit into the hole of where your lugnut goes. Putting that down I cant use the stock 19mm lug nuts. Can anyone please tell me what my options are. or where I can find a 15 mm lug nut or something please.

Will this work?^

The only stuff I see is 17mm lug bolts..
Going to be a tough one to find.
I bet the only solution is to install lug bolts instead of lug nuts on the studs you have.


(Well maybe somewhere is a nut which has a 15mm face? Considering the stud is 12 mm... The makes for a hellaciously thin nut. [bigcry]

What wheels did you buy? You could look into Gorilla lug nuts, which use a special spline design instead of a traditional hex bolt. They also come with a skinny socket to remove them.

Gorilla should work or you can check out Muteki lug nuts.

Usually discount tire ships lug nuts and the needed socket with the wheels. They did all 3 times I got wheels.

not for me

Whatever lug nut that has to fit has to be 16mm at the biggest

WILLL THIS WORK?:)

My hole for where the lug nut goes is 15/16 I believe

Looks like those will probably work and they don't cost too much.
