I know that this should be asked under the wheels and tire section but I need a fast response. What type of lug nuts do you use with these wheels? I just got them yesterday and used acorns to mount them. However the wheels are wobbling so I took it in today to see if the axles where bent and they told me that the axles were fine and that the lugs were wrong because the wheels are to thick and only a couple of threads are in contact with the lugs. There are aluminum drums on the back, are these thicker than standard drums? Should I use a mag type lug nut, or should I put on longer studs?

Sounds like you need longer studs. The acorn style lug is correct although there are a couple of different angles to the cone of the lugnut. If they are verified for the TT2's then a longer stud is needed.

Call Summitracing and get the correct nuts.

when I purchase my rims, they asked all the correct questions about the car, backspacing etc.. and sold me a set of "Gorilla nuts" (thats what it said ont he box!) and they work perfect!

Summits # is 1800 230 3030

I have torque thrust's on my Yenko clone. I had to replace the bolts on the back, but the fronts were long enough.
