    I'm getting ready for my Need 4 Speed Motorsports R Spec wheels and am trying to figure out what lug nuts I need. The 1/2" tuner lug nuts came with my CorteX Racing 1/2" front wheel studs and I also purchased 14mm tuner lug nuts for the rears and these should work with the R spec wheels. I'm also looking for open 14mm lug nuts for the stock wheels to match the Ford Racing ones I'm using up front. I have two questions:

    Does anyone have a link to full size 14mm open lug nuts to use with the stock wheels? I'm having trouble locating any.

    For those of you with Forgestar or similar wheels that use tuner (smaller) lug nuts is there sufficient contact patch from the conical seat area to properly secure the wheel? They look awfully small compared to the stock lug nuts.

    L to R: Factory 14mm, tuner 14mm, Ford Racing 1/2", tuner 1/2"

    I use the small acorn nuts (14mm) on my Forgestars, but only for street duty. I have the same concern for Track use -- looking for nuts with a larger seat -- none so far......

    Which lug nuts did you use with the Forgestars on your Boss for the track?

    Thanks. I was under the impression the Ford Racing didn't fit the Forgestars but that was incorrect.

    I was not comfortable with those smaller lugs as well. I am using Gorilla 90087 and found a slightly thinner walled socket that works great with them and the Forgestars.

    Thanks.

    Are these full size 14mm?

    The 14mm 90047 use the same 13/16 socket as my 1/2" 90087s and both are 1" tall. Thus I would guess these are the full size.

    Good find but $8.99 each? :eek:

    This looks like it might work if it's open.

    That's them!

    Part number from the bag is 2L1Z-1012-AA but I can't bring it up on the WBLF website. Is the number the same on your invoice?

    I am not sure that these will work with the Project 6GR wheels as Paul just posted that "Also no factory lugs are too fat". Any idea if that is true?

    @VoodooBOSS They do not fit :(

    Right diameter, wrong pitch. The search continues ::)

    @Moto has sourced the correct lug nut and I purchased one form my local NAPA Auto Parts to confirm that it fits the N4SM R Spec wheels. He found them on ebay at a reasonable price. I'm sure Ford Performance will have some available soon but these have a much larger seat/cone than the tuner luts I purchased from Summit. Dorman 611-257 is the part number. The one on the right is the correct one.
