"Eccentric" lug nuts

Does anyone know where I can get these "eccentric" lug nuts in 7/16"? I have searched on google, summit and jegs, without luck

I want to mount the 18" BBS rims from my old Beemer on the Camaro, but as the Beemer wheels are 5x120mm and the Camaro uses 5x120,6mm, these nuts would be able to solve the problem

Re: "Eccentric" lug nuts

If they both are 5x120mm why do you need special lugs?
But those just look like standard lug nuts you can get anywhere, try summit for lugs with "conical" seats they have them.

How would you know the eccentric was in the right position when the lug nut was properly torqued down? This sounds like a mythical product.

Mike - '68 Camaro - aftermarket or modern pretty much everything.

The conical seat can be moved around 2-3mm on the nut. I have been reading several opinions regarding 120,6mm vs the 120mm bolt pattern on the BMW wheels. Some people say that it works fine just using standard conical nuts. Others say don't do it. I just don't want to risk damaging the wheels or suffering ride quality.

As I will be using a hub centric ring to be sure that the wheel is center, I don't think that this will be a problem? If you torque down the lug nuts gradually in a normal star pattern, the eccentric will center in the wheel. This is a product that is widely used in Europe, but I just haven't been able to find them in 7/16"

Re: "Eccentric" lug nuts

It's actually 120.65 if that matters... Have you googled? I did and found lots of sites that sell lots of lug nuts. Here's a couple examples...

http://www.ezaccessory.com/Mag_Lug_Nuts_s/2.htm

http://www.gotlugs.com/merchant2/mer...FRlcagodv0nlLQ

I don't know if they have what you are looking for but if not why not replace the studs with some from a local source so you can also get your lugs local?

That's right, it is 120.65....my bad.

I had tried searching on google, but only for the actual eccentric lug nuts. But thanks for the links.

My intention was to replace the studs, but I also wanted to be able to use my Draglites for the strip, so I ditched this option. Well, that was until this evening while searching on Summit's website to find out, that they sell the Weld lug nuts in M12x1.5mm thread: Great, just the size I need So now its down to the local machine shop to find some studs that fit.
