I note that the standard LX steel wheels are fitted with nuts onto studs. Are the alloy wheels fitted to the Zetec car on nuts or bolts? If nuts, are they the same as the steels or a different size/profile?

Many thanks for any observations or experiences?

Thanks

Whenever Alloys are fitted, they always use different nuts to the steelies. You need ones with sleeves on. Best bet is to buy a set from your main dealer along with locking wheel nuts. Otherwise you wont have the alloys on your car for too long.
