Wheel nuts.

Post by firebob22 » Sat Nov 16, 2019 10:24 am

Hi all. Anyone know where I can get 3/8 UNF wheel nuts. They are 35mm long from top of the nut to the bottom of the taper. The problem is on fleabay, they only sell in quantities of 16 & I only need 8. The chrome's coming off the ones I've got now & i'm fed up of slicing my fingers to shreds when I take them off. Maybe i'll just have to suck up the extra tenner & get a full set unless anyone can help. Cheers all. Bob. :thumbsup:

Get 16 and then you have spares for when the chrome comes off the new ones
