WTB: Lugs for my Lorinser LO8016511 Wheels
It seems that 12x1.5 40mm shaft ball seat lugs work well, but I'm not sure that they are the right lugs to use for the wheels.
Does anyone have any recommended:
- Way to determine what TYPE of lugs are correct? (Ball or Cone Seat?)
- Way to determine what depth shafts I should be running? (1973 450sl)
- Place to buy the Lugs I should use?
I'm assuming I could use any dime-a-dozen lugs, but I want to make sure I don't wreck these wheels.
The wheels came with only 5 lugs that fit right, 12x1.5 ball-seat, 40mm shaft, 70mm overall, which also seems to fit the w201 15-hole 7x15 et44 wheel I have pretty well. Should I assume that's the lug I should use, or is there a good way to "make sure". (Number of twists-to-tight?)
I bought a set of 20 more of these on eBay and 15 are totally stripped. Before I buy more, I thought I'd make sure I'm buying the right thing. Thanks in advance!
