    Default Wheel Studs & Nuts

    My current studs & nuts are quite frankly very poor...
    they dont feel like good hardened steel, the holes in some nuts are off centre!!!

    The studs are M12x1.5, nuts who really cares as long as i can get rid of em!

    Does anyone know where to get GOOD studs & nuts?
    Tried supercheap, auto one, auto barn etc etc etc... all no joy!

    I need to get some shorter studs/bolts/whatever for my 205. They're kinda long, and hang out of the wheels a touch (a couple are shorter too!). Haven't really looked for any, but haven't seen any by accident either.

    Nate, that's the same as a lot of cars - Nissan comes to mind, as when I needed 12 x 1.25 for my R12, the guy from Mr Mag (here in WA) said that they were the same as Nissan nuts. You just need to make sure that any taper or insert in the hole matches the originals.

    Are you saying Renault Clio Sport wheel studs are average quality? I find that very hard to believe. Its just not something that Renault would skimp on.

    If you want some "sports" wheel nuts visit Revolution Racegear and bring your Visa card or cheque book.

    no no no no no....

    on stock wheels, the studs & nuts are actually 1 piece...
    with ma phat chromies i needed studs & nuts... the local place that put my wheels on were less than capable... (cross threaded 1 nut on the stud & 1 stud in the hub... hub is OK thou)
    and the standard studs used (available from auto one etc) which i think most places use, are dodge... as are the nuts (i can get different nuts quite easily, but would like recommendations!)

    And tekkie are wheel nuts something i should skimp on? hehehe
    If the ol Renaults only need three.... hmmm

    Default Wheel nuts? and studs.

    I am not familiar with the stud or screw type wheel retainer on your Clio You mention yours are 12mm x 1.5 is this correct? Most Peugeot ie 504 are 12mm x 1.25 as in the Nissan nuts that have been suggested.

    You have also mentioned that Chrysler, Dodge use this type of screw, that is correct but they would be an Imperial thread or UNF. If the Chrysler screws are 7/16 dia. be very carefull because they will appear to fit the 12mm x 1.25 thread albeit loosely.
    Fiat also use this type of wheel retainer, I'm unsure of the size.

    I haven't any usefull advice for you other than the above caution.

    Studs and nuts are one piece?

    You mean they are wheel bolts?

    You have to get your description right...

    Well, it does matter inasmuch as you aren't after a replacement, you're looking at a modification...

    Anyway, you can bet that they are indeed 'good hardened steel' if that's what's needed.
