where to get 5/8" lug nuts???

been searching strange, moser, summit, jegs, etc... cant find just lug nuts for my strange axles? only things i found were with the whole stud kit which i do not need. where do you guys get extras?

if this would be better in a different area, please move it, but i figured people here would know the most abut 5/6" studs

I would call and ask Strange or Moser, i'm sure they carry them there just probably not listed on the web. Also PM AaronP on here, he makes some really trick SFI 12pt. aluminum ones!

What about a circle track racer parts supplier? 5/8" studs are pretty common for the roundy-round guys, IIRC.

You need nuts and spacers unless you get a set of aarons nuts.

Mark williams has some really nice ones the spacer is locked on the nut. Aarons are a 1 piece design.

Mine came with nuts and aluminum spacers. But the nuts are pretty heavy. Who is Mark Williams?

I remember when Aaron was selling them for $60 and free shipping. I kick myself for not getting some! At the time I thought that was too expensive. LOL

Do the speed doctor 5/8 x 18 come with spacers?? I run 5/8 studs with Billet Specialties street lite wheels. My studs are not threaded all the way to the axle. So I need to use a spacer between the lug nut and wheel...

Or are there shorter studs available to use the speed doctors without a spacer?

Every ounce of weight loss counts. Them long studs are heavy.....

On my ROH wheels I had to run the APR 12 point nuts for 5/8" studs. They have a smaller diameter than the standard drive kits.

The aluminum wheel nuts are real nice as well. Seen them on a few different cars locally.

That link just gives me a stud kit. Like I said. Don't need studs just lug nuts. Those 12pt ones are sweet but don't come with spacers

Hey Guys, bring back this somewhat old thread. I really need a few of these 12 point Aluminum Lug nuts in both 1/2" and 5/8" sizes. A few as ONLY 2 of each size so it would be a real problem to justify ordering 2 sets totalling 20 lug nuts in order to get the two that I need and have 16 unused spares sitting in the tool box. The various few shops that are carrying these are only selling in 10 packs and they don't want to break them down. I tried to convince one of them that they should carry a few of them as Replacement Spares, but they wouldn't go for it! Can someone PM me Aaron P's cntact information?

Thanks,
Swiss

That was my other 2pc design. The billet 7075 1pc 5/8" and 1/2-20 12 point lugs have always been the same price at $85 MSRP.

I sell the lugs through a few dealers in the US and the UK, and have them on cars as far away as Tasmania in southern Australia.

The 5/8" have a 1/4" deep counterbore in them, so * IF the shoulder of your stud sticks out 1/4" or less past the face of the wheel/lug hole, you are not required to run any sort of round spacer under the nut*
Uses a normal 15/16" 12 point socket torqued to 90-110ft-lbs.

Several thousand lugs have been sold, and not a single report of a stripped out lug. 7075 aluminum is pretty tough stuff. My initial R&D tests were a 1/2" drive snap on impact hitting the lug on a wheel for 5 strait minutes, and then over-torqueing them to 150lbs (the highest setting on my wrench). Neither time did they fail. Both have been certified by the NHRA safety committie in california and I have letters of acceptance on both thread sizes.

*DO NOT USE A IMPACT ON MY LUGS!!* It will leave marks on the aluminum, not cracks, but it will not be pretty. I did that test solely for stress test purposes.

I like the Mark Williams 5/8 lug nut's. They have bearing attached and don't scare the wheel.

There's no bearing on their lugs. It's only a thin captive washer. Mine don't scare the wheel either.

My Monocoque wheels don't get scared by anyone's lug nut. They may get scarred but they ain't afraid of them.

Aaron - I'll need some for the Evil twin after the holidays. Too much on the schedule to do before I re-install the suspension.
