350z Rims

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, I've recently purchased some 350z track rims for my S15 and I've been told that you cannot run after market nuts on stock rims. Is this correct? I've contacted nissan to purchase some stock wheel nuts but they are out of stock all over Australia. I want to get some volks as they are lightweight and they come in black and my rims are powdercoated black.

 

Can you run tapered nuts on stock wheels?

You can but you shouldn't...you don't need the Nissan nuts, any tyre place should have steel nuts that will fit.

It's something to do with after market nuts being tapered and stock are flat, and they grab the wheels better.

The wheel nuts on my Stock 350z with track wheels are tapered

 

As long as u match the aftermarket wheel nuts with the nissan ones you will be fine.

Autobarn "should" be able to match them for you if u can take a nut into a store

 

If you dont get the right taper then u will run into some trouble

Most tapered nuts have a 60 degree taper. I'm gathering that the stock nuts were tapered?
