Is Upgrade In Wheel Nuts Possible?

Discussion in 'Tyres & Alloys' started by Harsh, Dec 26, 2012.

  1. I upgraded recently from 14" to 15"
    with a complete set up of tyres and alloys also.
    now i am wondering can we upgrade the wheel nuts too?
    I am seeing them as pretty old and i dont-know-why not appealing in those holes...

    are there any ways i can upgrade to better quality nuts or something?

    Oh yes. You should be able to get Stainless steel lugs.

    Proper torque + clean bolts (when installing) will last the lifetime of the car, easily.

    It is when the tyre-guys or we start tightening them like an ape / tightening incorrectly that either they or the hub goes bad.

    Just do the basics right and you'll be fine.

    The ones in the Linea/Punto are Aluminium if i'm correct. Solid and won't rust. Can't really expect more from them.

    Aluminium? Are you sure? The Palio had lugs that would stick to a magnet. Haven't checked the Linea though.
