SALE PENDING...

Sale is pending and I am not entertaining anymore propositions in regards to the wheels. I'll come back to this thread with one of two things:

(1) The wheels are sold and this thread be closed, or

(2) The wheels are again up for sale.

These components are included with the wheels NOW.
Missing components to complete the set are:
Four tires, one air thing (where you fill the air from), and 20 lugs.

I am adding this information for two reasons. One being that if the current pending sale does not complete, I want the sales forum to have the most up-to-date description of the product and the other is for reference, so others who are also interested in this model wheel will have a better idea about the product and the components that fit it (i.e. center caps).

Also if there are any wheel experts browsing through, who KNOW the correct length of the lugs that go with this wheel in millimeters, it would be tremendously appreciated if you would spare the time and share your knowledge.

Good luck.

Good luck.
The very rare radial seat lugs appropriate for the Aero I have a shaft length of 32mm and a shank length of 40mm.

Purchased these:

Gorilla Automotive Products - Lug Nuts, Wheel Locks, Auto Security, Wheel Accessories

Machined the shafts from 39mm to 32mm and tappered the ends and sent them out for power coating.

I think they turned out very nice and once mounted they now become an extension of the wheel's features.

Enjoy.
