    I just purchased a set of Method Standards in 17x8.5 (big thanks to rcfreak201 for hooking me up!) to go with my Maxtrac spindles and wanted to know what kind of lugs i need. I'm pretty sure they are the conical type but I don't know if I need extended thread lugs or not. I searched around and found some info about other wheels but couldn't find any info specifically about Methods.

    Still waiting to get my order but I got the conical ETs to help center the wheel since the methods are not hub centric.

    This was actually the recommendation made by method when I stopped by their shop.

    Sweet. I went by 4 Wheel Parts and they had an ET lug for me to test fit and the extended lug portion fit just fine into the holes on the rims. That was my main concern as I've heard that some rims have narrower lug holes and it can be a tight squeeze.
