    Default Multi Fit Wheels

    hey everyone
    i have a set of multi fit wheels and i was just womdering do you need a a special type of wheel nut on there. i am a bit hesitant with them because at high speed they seem to be a bit weird and i dont like to do 100 because im afraid the nuts will come loose and the wheel will come off
    thanks for any help

    The multifit part doesnt make any difference. The thing you have to take in to account is the tapper on the rim, where the stud goes in the hole. Take one of them down to any decent tyre shop and they should be able to supply you with the right wheel nuts.

    They will (should) only fit in to one lot of holes. If it is a real tight fit, then they are the wrong holes. Try the other ones. And if they are a tiught fit aswell, do not put them on the car. They are most likely the wrong stud pattern for the car.

    Take a look at the picture below. It is a picture of a few wheel nuts. I have drawn arrows to which part i am talkking about, when i say the tapper. The tapper on them are all different (sort of). There are literally hundreds of different kinds of wheel nuts, with different angle tappers, different stud thickness, thread pattern, ect.

    I would suggest taking them to a tyre shop, and get them to give you the right ones to suit the rim and studs on the car.

    oh ok i get you but with mine there is only 5 holes as per the stud pattern just instead of them being circle they are oval so they must fit like 5 studs but that have a different offset(if thats the right word)

    Ah yea i get what you mean. I have seen those type of multi fit rims before. If they are like all the ones i have seen in the past, they should be like a 8 sort of shape, correct? If they are, they should still only fit in the one hole. And if you have the correct nut, it should hold it in place.

    na mine are really just a oval maybe they were an 8 before i got them but i dont think so bcos all the holes are the same and dont look just worn that way unless someone has specifically drilled them like that but yeah ill definately be going down to the tyre place that got the tyres for me it was hard getting the tyres for them because they were 15x 10 i got the 2nd last set apparantly b4 they had to import more from america i dunno if it was good spin or the truth but.
    also are they illegal someone told me they were?

    They are factory slotted. The nuts are normal mag nuts, but you use much bigger/heavier washers with them than normal, and the washers depend on which stud pattern you are fitting them to. E.g. for Ford stud pattern the washers will have the centre hole offset, while for Holden/Chev pattern the hole will be centred. These washers push against the small nibs on the inside of the spokes to ensure that the wheel centres correctly.

    They are perfectly safe if used correctly with the correct washers, however I wouldn't know about legalities on your side of the ditch; some places have blanket rules against slotted wheels because they can be easy to locate wrongly.

    Any good wheel/tyre place should be able to help you, especially if they sell Cragars

    ok so i took my rim and tapper down to the tyre shop and he reckons they have never seen multi fits like mine and that its probably just ****ed and i lost it bcos the same tyre shop not 6 months ago happily put tyres on the rims and apparantly didnt pick up on it but when i showed him the rim it took him 1 sec to realise it as soon as he saw it hes like na there buggered. he called hes mate and they reckon that the only way to fix it is is to weld all the rims which will be at least 300 a rim. so now im stuck with 4 rims which are apparantly multifits and a set of tyres with 100% tread that i cant use. im going to put a photo up tommorow when i get the camera and see what you guys reckon but i dunno doesnt look too good and im not real happy lol

    Yes post a good photo and it should be obvious. Sounds a bit like they're trying to take them off your hands cheap...?
