alloy wheel nuts

Im trying to take off my boosts and all but one of the alloy lugs or nuts are deformed to the point that i cant get them off with the 27MM socket......i just ordered a 28mm socket becouse i dont have any larger ones in standard sizes anyway.......

Im sure i could hammer the 27MM one over the lugs but for now im just gonna wait the one day to get the 28mm and try that first. (gotta love amazon prime)

Anyway i think i should order a new set of alloy lugs for my boosts and was wondering if either anyway had some laying around they wanted to sell or if someone could point me in the direction of a good deal?

thanks!

They rust and bulge. Get replacements. RRC units are better

Someone used a 12 Point and bent the outside thin chrome sheet.
That obviously means wrenching them is very very difficult.
I take a 1 1/16" 6 point socket and hammer it on.
Then use a lead hammer to drive the nuts out of the socket.
For the difficult ones I made and extractor out of a bolt and piece of steel pipe, but couldn't locate it last time it was needed.

I have a 22.5mm socket for newer Rovers for this same problem, along with a 23mm. Lots of things can cause this, but it can be avoided by using the correct size 6 pt socket and some anti seize on the studs.

Atlantic British had them as well. It's where I got mine. Might have paid s little more, but I didn't have to wait as long.

The ones Paddocks show are the old style RRC lugs, which are solid and don't have the thin steel cap so they can't deform. It's well worth changing over to them to avoid the hassle of the covered ones. You might also find some used ones off a pre-'93 or so RRC, I think they went to the covered ones in either '93 or '94. I've sold a couple of sets to people who wanted to change over to them but don't have any in stock right now.

There are a few links showing how to remove the chrome cap

It looks super ghetto to have it like that and it also exposes the stud to even more moisture and road salt.

You can also replace the cap (I think)

Well there isn't anything wrong with the capped nuts if you use the correct socket.

ohhh ok so the picture looks like the solid ones but the part number is not for the solid ones.......???

looks like Pedro may have a set of the solid ones he is willing to hook me up with......

just to confirm they are DIRECT replacements for the alloy lugs i have now? they look the same and have the same taper its just solid instead of a thin cap?


thanks!

These guys have a unique lug nut:

http://m.ebay.com/itm/351149350752?cmd=VIDESC&gxo=true

It's solid, but has the taper that at least looks like it might work on the steel spares.

Wringdon in the UK does some that are solid stainless and fully polished...
The last set I bought was about $400 though.
