    Adult Content Best place for nuts?

    I knew that would get your attention

    Where's the best place to get hold of tuner nuts/bolts for wheels...I'm after the type with 60degree taper

    I'm not sure exactly what's going to fit, so I'd rather buy it from a shop and try it on, than order online...I don't trust the pikeys at wheelmania or wheelbase (only 2 places i can think of near me)

    ...and also...are the horror stories true of wheels falling off if you buy cheap nuts??!

    ive already been stung shabzz by wheelmania (harborne) if thats the one closest to you. or the one in solihull?

    i got tuner bolts from them, then they didnt fit and wouldnt give me a refund cuz it'd been over so many days. even though he said they'd fit the wheels i was using.

    the one in solihull is nearest me...

    i don't like their attitude over the phone, really pi$$es me off...not just on one occasion either

    i'm after m12 x 1.5 so i don't think they'd fit

    how do you know what length you need? i would order online if i knew they would fit

    these are long enough for vauxhall fitment wheels. they are the same size as standard vaux bolts, jus tapered. i howver wanted to fit mercedes wheels so the bolts werent long enough

    work equips...



    8" front 9" rear...et35 all round...i don't know if that makes a difference to what nuts/bolts you need?

    also, how would i know if i need a nut or a bolt? or are they the same?

    whats the stud pattern? 5x112?

    poke a standard vaux bolt through one of the wheel holes. if it pokes out quite abit then a small bolt will be fine. if it doesnt poke out much u will need longer bolts.

    who told you you need m12 x 1.5?

    you can come down and try these bolts if you want. but firstly check if a standard vaux wheel bolt fits thru the wheel hole. (assuming theyre going on a vaux)
