Re: Wheel Weight Question

SVXESS, does the OEM SVX lug nuts fits behind the BBS center cap or you need shorter ones? Thanks

Re: Wheel Weight Question

They are nice wheels. =D
But in these days they maybe look small, but they look good on the svx.
So it make its time right. (if i can say that) like a really 90S.

The stock OEM lug nuts are too long and have a flat washer which presses against the wheel. The BBS wheels use a regular 60 cone-shaped lug nut that tightens to be flush with the end of the wheel stud.

The same with the wheel locks. (McGard 24013)
