Just purchased a set of delta wheels in the above size and have a couple of questions.

I currently run 16x8 TI alloys but I am pretty sure the wheel nuts will not fit the deltas. Does anyone know what nuts are the right ones and where to get hold of them.

Second one...there are some inserts missing from the deltas where the wheel nuts seat on the rim. Are they replaceable and if so, where do I get them from?

I bought these from a great fella up on the coast...thanks Trent!...and have the intention of putting off road tyres on them and keeping the TI alloys for road turns only. I am confused about the drop in rim size and what tyre I can fit on them to maintain the overall diameter. I currently have 265 70 16 on the TI rims...what are your suggestions for the 15x8 in an AT tyre.

Thanks in advance...

Hey CPOCSM,
Google tyre size calculator. There are a heap of these that you can put in your current tyres then play with different options of rim and tyre to get the desired size increase or same diameter as you need.

Regarding the rims, are we talking GU or GQ Ti rims?

The majority of Nisan alloys and steels all used the same tapered seat nuts on the rims. So it is only if the new wheels you have do not have a tapered seat but a flat seat that you will need to use the different flat stepped seat lug nuts with a washer.

Many alloy wheels have pressed in steel inserts. If they are missing any inserts, then you will need to go to a wheel repair specialist to make sure they are set in correctly.
