Quick Question?

I have a 97 bird with the 16" sport wheels and purchased the thunderbird centercaps with the ruberized logo in the middle, commonly found on early tbird wheels. My question is what size lug nuts do i need? my stock ones stick out to far for the caps to fit.

I would also like to know if there are better brands than others if i were to buy new and where a good place to get some would be?

thanks in advance!

Why not come up with a set of lug nuts from an early car that has the same center caps?

i would love to buy some used ones. But i still wanna know the size of them so i don't buy lugs that were made for rims like mine.

And i can't measure any of my lugs because my car is about 45min away tucked back in a barn at my parents. Im just tryin to get stuff so when good weather hits i will b ready

Cool lug nuts

your summit lugs should be fine as long as they are torqued properly, 85-90 ft
