Urgent wheel help needed!!

Hey everyone. My car is at the tire shop and the tires are mounted on my '07 sti rims. Problem is, the lug nuts dont fit. Where can I find lug nuts for this thing tonight. Does subaru sell them, and what lug nuts will i need to buy?

Thank You,

Hi,
If you have the stock lug nuts, they will work,they have the correct angle at the bottom of the "collar" ... just will look weird with the washers attached. Many nice looking ones available on Ebay/Amazon etc....

I used these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0006HOW9C

I like them, they work well and aren't as expensive as the splinedrive ones. McGard makes good stuff.

Re: Urgent wheel help needed!!

just get a set for a "2005 STi". Old enough to be in most of thier parts lists, good year to recall since it has the same boltpattern as the SVX.

In reality any M12X1.25 lugnuts for conventional rims will work. So if they get pissy, WRX/Outback/forester/legacy/etc will all work.

DON'T use the stock SVX lugnuts as the tapered section at the bottom is ment for the temp spare and will damage an alloy with its small mating surface.
