lug nuts for Ridler 695

Hi,

Just mounted my Ridler 695 to my C5 setup and notice that my acorn buldge nuts fill up the whole and don't really allow a socket to fit over them.

What are you guys using with your Ridler wheels? running 12mm up front and 1/2 in back.

Thanks in advance!

Check the Dorman website and look at their illustrated buyers guide.

What is the diameter of the hole? Spline lug nuts are probably in your future.

Re: lug nuts for Ridler 695

When the Hole in the New JEGs Wheels I bought was bigger than a Stock Type Steel Wheel Hole

After making a call to JEGs they went to the Storeroom got one of the Wheels I bought from them
and confirmed that these Nuts would work better than the Acorn Style Nuts
for my Front 7/16" Longer Studs

for my Rear 1/2" Longer Studs

Also had to put Longer Studs on the Front and Back since the Center part was much Thicker

Thanks Guys.

Ridler says they use conical 60 degree seats. Issue is the lug nut holes are really tight, so I think splined is probably the way to go.

Appreciate it!

I use the 3/4 60 degree acorn with shank. No problem getting a 3/4 socket in there 13/16 is a no go. Love the shanked acorn lug nuts. Gives a lot of extra threads.

I’ve used Gorilla Lug nuts on a few cars. The quality is exceptional. And the website has the details to get exactly what you need. Good luck
