alloy wheel nuts on steel spare?

3 posts in this topic

Hi there, am a newbie to the forum as am in a quandry. noticed one of the rear tyres has severe crazing and spliting around the rim of the tyre. decided to change wheel for the spare. however the steel spare doesnt look right with the alloy wheel nuts on it. Just wanted to pick ur brains whether this is safe or whether it will defo need steel wheel nuts?

Thanks in advance, keith. :)

steel wheels and alloys have different shoulders,use the correct bolts/nuts for each application.

There should be steel wheel nuts in your pack beside the locking nut.
