Most any of the Nissan Mag wheel lug nuts will work from about 1978 to 1990. I know it's a pain in the butt, however the last time I priced them out at the dealer - the lug nuts were worth more than the wheels!

OK thanks Byron, then I'll check it out then.
So a 300zx z31 with stock mags could/should have these lug nuts?

I walked into the nissan dealer a few weeks ago....

I paid ~$5.50 for each lug nut ....... I only needed 8 ....... but damn,,,,


They were for my old minilites........ and all the local tire shops said I needed to go to the nissan dealer,,, ,, because the nissan lugs have a shorter shank, and it's thicker than the cheap generic tire shop lugs

That's the part number that's been passed around different posts here, but I haven't seen anyone confirm after their order. Good luck.
