Datsun/Nissan Mag Lugbnuts

Postby Octave » 28 Dec 2013 14:54

Could someone post and/or messure a real OEM 280zx or comparable datsun mag lugnut. I have brand new pull offs from Infiniti when we put wheel locks on the new cars I inspect. I have a bucket of them. Only place so far that I have seen is ebay giving shank width. They say .73 and I measure .78 on these new lugnuts. So i look up 370z and g37 lugnuts and ebay sells them as .73. which in reality is too small. Not to say that surprizes me. Ebay is not really known for good quallity parts. So i wonder still if these new shiny OEM lugnuts could still work for us Datsun guys. If so I can sell cheap and make a few bucks. If not it's no big lose. I will try to get to my 510 this weekend but honestly dont know what type of wheel or lugnuts i have. I believe I have an old toyota wheel which reguires the same lugnut to work. But the Dime is in a garage 30 min away from my house.

Thanks! Looks like mine are a tad to big at 20.5mm all though I might measure again with a different caliper tool. I think the EBay aftermarket ones I've seen measure 18mm. If that's true I'd stay away from them.
