Recommended Posts

hi all can anyone help i have a escort van on a 88 plate i want to put ally wheels on it but cant find the right bolts(not wide enough) the ones i keep getting only have about 3/4mm grip i  think i need wider ones so question is is that enough grip to hold wheel on or do you know where i can get the right ones from all i get from ebay is ones that are made from some kind of alloy

I don't think I am going to know the answer but can you tell us what alloy wheels you are putting on it eg. standard Escort Mk4 XR3I wheels?

Hi there,

Not sure about the U.K. but here in S.A. Ford used a wheel nut that comes from Volvo on some of their stock Mags. It has a loose collar on the rim which engages on the wheel, increasing the grip area while retaining the nut size.  Might be worth looking into.
