hey my rims are in and i was wondering if i need special bolts to mount them.. they are a cupped face right now to fit into the stock grooves.. i cant mount them though cause i dont have the rubber mounted..its for an Audi A4, so i guess the bolts are really nuts.

the audi guys will understand

k do i need to get different lug nuts for my new rims, as well as a few locking lug nutz so no one jacks my shit...............that makes more sense than the original ramble

Youll need tuner lugs for aftermarket rims. Kaltire has them as do many of our sponsors.

What kind of wheels did you get (size/width/offset as well...)?
Had to CMS and pick up the bolts, they'll be able to get you exactly what you need.

18x9 Adr Limited Edition Spartans ...5x112 with 35mm offset.... rubber is nexen n3000 235/40R/18....nice black rims with polished lip.... ordered them from WCW..(whiteys custom wheels) .......cms hooked me up with an unreal deal on tires so ill get them mounted there as well as the lugs

ill post pics once they are on, no comments on ride height though

make sure you get the right lugs with the correct seating pattern for the rims.

They can be this (most common): \__/ or (___)

taper vs. coned

If not, then only about 10% of the lug will make contact with the rim and they can spin off in a short time and then you'll be in trouble.
