    All Aluminum wheels use "Shank" style lugs. 1.5 pitch.

    the 12mm reffers to the length, and I think it depends alot on the wheel.

    You need a different socket. They have Thin Wall sockets for these lugs.

    Check a local Hardwaer store, or Sears. They should have them. Maybe even an Auto Zone or the like.

Sport wheels added.


    13/16"



    Also, the 12M is the size of the STUD/bolt not length. Go buy a M12Xwhatever length bolt and a M14Xwhatever length bolt and see what you get.

    The lug is a 12M X 1.50 pitch. You'll need a shanked version, and there are two common sizes. Make sure you get the correct size to fit the hole in your wheel. If you get the smaller lug diameter you will have issues. LUGcentric will not be so good.

    ah HA!!!!

    Thanks for clearing that up. I was told it was the length of the stud, hence the length of the nut.

    I should have read your first post a little closer( I'm on vacation and have had a couple too many:D) I have not sold any eagle wheels in a while but..........they should have a conical lug seat. This should enable you to get a regular set of lugs anywhere you want. I think close to 90% of lugs on the aftermarket side are conical. I'll call my local guy tomorrow and find out......very few wheels have a shank style lug hole anymore. To make a really story short........its super easy to F#*k it up if the wheel has shank style lug(plus almost every auto manufacturer has switched to conical style lug wheels). If your wheel has a flat lug seat....its a shank lug seat. If it looks like a funnel(for lack of a better explanation) it takes a conical lug. Good luck.......
