For anyone running diamond racing or basset wheels, what lug nuts are you running???  I know i need 45 degree conical with 12x1.25mm threads but the only one I can find is open ended ugly lug nuts off of summit racing.  I've been looking for awhile now and haven't found anything else.  Can someone please shed some light on this because I really want to get my wheels on my car with some decent looking lug nuts. please help lol

Have you gone to a custom wheel store? Discount Tire?

You can't hang if your nuts haven't dropped...it's physics

I think that's about all you're going to get, with it being a unique taper.

Aren't racing wheels normally running open style lug nuts? Ya know, weight savings? They are racecar wheels after all?





How else ya gonna show off your long wheels studs?

Good news! I'm an idiot! There websites states 5* bolt pattern wheels need the 45 degree taper, not the 4,I read it wrong. they use normal 60s.
