    I'm switching from 15x8" steel rims to 15x10" aluminum rims and I dont know if I need new lug nuts or not. My dad said I do but I dont know so I figured I'd ask you guys . So what's the verdict, do I need new nuts or not and if so where can I get them from? thx /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    It all depends on the rim and the lug nuts. Some you do, some you don't.

    if both wheels are acorn seat (should be) then yes they will work.

    LOL I meant it to be that way /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif. I don't think that the aluminum rims are acron seat (they are currently in storage) but I know the steelies are. If in fact the aluminums are not acorn, what kind of nuts will I need? Just flat ended ones or special ones? thx
