Boost fitament help

The good news is I scored some cheap boosts from a junkyard. The bad news is I need some lug nuts that fit the wheels and these spaces that I have. Does anybody know what size I need or where I can get these? Does anybody have some boost lugs they want to sell?

I thought Boost lugs were the same as any other Alloy wheel lugs.
For the spacer nuts contact EzAccessories.

I guess I should clarify, the wheels came with no lugs, I just need to know where to get them

Contact Randy, Joel, Will, Paul, Marty, etc. Any of the guys who part out rovers for a living should be able to set you up. Or ebay.

The guy at the local tire shop also mentioned that the bolts coming out of my spacers were the wrong size, that they needed to be bigger, 16mm I believe he said....so 1) was he smoking crack? or b) did I hear him wrong and was he just referring to the lugs or 3) I heard him right and if so are the bolts on spacers changeable or do you need completely new spacers?

Spacer lug size

Sorry to keep bumping this thread but I just want to make sure I have the right wheels spacers for these boosts that I acquired. After reading through some old threads here: http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...eferrerid=6909

it seems that I need wheel spacers that have a 16/1.5 threaded lug. I believe the spacers that I have that I took off the truck years ago have a 14/1.5 threaded lug. I previously used these for some Pro comp wheels I had.

These appear to be the correct spacers for Boosts on a ROW 110 if someone can just double check me: http://www.ezaccessory.com/Hub_Centr...-5650-hs-r.htm

Thanks for the help,
Andy

Those spacers look like mine.... someone close to you has to have a set of lugs your can borrow, or at least a couple lug nuts, so you can try it out.

Cool thanks, would be nice to try some lugs out. The other option I was thinking is could I buy these and have them put into my spacers? http://www.ezaccessory.com/Wheel_Ada...1_5_p/st25.htm

Not sure how that would work or if it is safe...

try screwing on one of your current, steel wheel lug nuts, without the rim... You should know if they are the same thread.

The only trouble with those type of spacers, is there is no "rim" on the inner radius that helps to locate the wheel in place.

I've had two sets of those on my rovers, and both sets caused a helluva lot of wheel-wobble (like a tank slapper if you were riding a m/bike), but the ones with the rim stops that.

I know that logic would say that the 5 lug nuts would hold the wheel central, but it seems not.

You're refering to hub-centric vs lug-centric spacers. Hub-centric spacers are considered to be a better way to go. They're also more expensive.
I got my lug-centric spacers from this board at a good price. I had to replace one of the studs and actually had to take off about a 1/4" off each stud because my RRC solid steel nuts were bottoming out.
No issues with the lug-centric spacers to date, other than Discount Tire being bitches and not touching my wheels/tires with the spacers on.
