I recently got the Voxx R Action 17x8 wheels on Ebay auction for BMW E36. These wheels fit only E36/E46/E40 cars and are designed for BMWs. Today I was mounting the wheel, and the factory lug nuts turned out to be too short for these wheels (lugs go only a couple of threads into the rotor). I have tried every autoparts store, including euro-import parts, and noone has these lugs available. The factory size is 12x1.5, and it's the only length everybody carries. I need lugs about 8mm to 10mm longer. Where do y'all get them?
Got the wheel mounting kit ordered from discount tire direct. Includes lug bolts of proper length and wheel locks, 60$ shipped. That's for a total of 20 bolts, 3 bucks apiece. These lugs a about 8mm longer than factory ones. Actually, many aftermarket wheels have to use them, so places like tire rack, etc. carry them.
