Lug bolt for 451

1821 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Shoehorn
I purchased some lug bolts for the aftermarket Newton Genius 17” wheels… but looks like the lug angle on the seating is not the same as the oem’s …
see below pictures. The right is the oem and the left is from the aftermarket
just want to see if they have different type of angles on the nut in the market or just my illusions?

Smart Madness shows OEM bolts as M12x1.5 with a ball seat. :)
Does it mean the seat is dependent on the the wheel? Those conical bolts come with the wheels that I ordered. Or the bolts should be the same as OEM?
If the wheels came with them then use them. The seat should match the wheel...
That’s what I think but just want to double check to make sure… I see there is a difference and it raises a red flag
I just went to my garage to double check… you guys are right … the aftermarket ones match with the cone nuts… I just worried too much~ thank you for your help again
