what size lug nuts??

I pulled the trigger this morning on a set of TTII's for my 69'. (real original right?)

What are the best size lug nuts to use??

Im sure someone here knows

Also, the bolt pattern is 5 4.75 right?.... cause that's what I ordered.

THANKS

Right, 5 x 4.75".

I'd use what they tell you to use w/ their wheels!

I say this b/c if I remember right, they may need flat stepped w/ washer lugnuts and the centering step part needs to be the right length. If it's too long, it will bottom out and the wheel will still be mounted, but tight lugnut-wise, loose to the hub/axle flange!

I do know my Bullitts use stock Ford v-coned type lugnuts. Much different than my old Fenton slotted mags that use what I mentioned earlier. And make sure the washers don't break!

the TTII's come with the proper flared lug nuts. they are 7/16 X 20 thread. Demand they provide the AR nuts that come supplied with each wheel!

Wow, when I ordered my Hopster rims, I didn't get any lugs. They take the acorn style lugs which I had from my previous rims.

So that's why I couldn't afford a set and got the MB Wheels "Old School". American Racing must've wanted me to pay for all your lug nuts.
