    I've been told before the nuts that hold the two halves of a 8 bolt(or 12 bolt I guess) H1 rim together are special and you have to get the right ones. Is there any reason I can't just go get some nuts that fit the studs and call it good?

    The have a kind of serated/self locking feature. Don't see why you couldn't use regular nuts, but I'd be inclined to check the torque on the nuts every so often. But, that wouldn't be on a street driven rig. I'd try to find the real thing or something similar.

    The stud is a wheel stud I'm fairly sure its is a 5/8ths NC thread. and the nuts are Stover nuts for sure (Stover = selflocking dues to distorted threads in the nut)
