Does anyone know what the thread pitch is on the wheel studs? I'm going to get some new lugs and need to know this.

Cheers - James

5/8 UNF is correct but you will need the actual measurements and the degree of taper on the nut when ordering wheel nuts to suit the wheels you are fitting. Not all wheels have the same taper angle on the nut seat.

They are 5/8 UNF and 18TPI (threads per inch) They are also a 60 degree taper from memory, that's what i ordered for my alloys and they are the right ones.

Most wheels are 60 degree, the only other ones i know of are 45 degree and bolts, 60 is the most common

Snake racing is the cheaper option for studs and nuts, stud part number is S796, they have nuts to suit, plus free postage

Frank,be careful with trailer studs unless they can guaranteed the grading of the studs as the OKA's are a tad heavy.
Cheers,Joe

If fitting alloys you need to know hte taper angle and the depth of the hole in the wheel to get nuts to suit. I bought mine from a mob in the US, 48 nuts cost $50 delivered to my door.
