m14x1.5 lug nuts closed end ball seat r13.. where?

Postby jlw » Mon Jan 11, 2021 11:09 pm

Im trying to find closed end m14x1.5 lug Nuts, ideally in black... have searched the interwebs fairly well but with no luck.. Anyone? There's lots with the larger Porsche r14 ball radius but only can find open end nuts with the audi/vw r13 radius.. thanks

Thanks for looking around Austin. Otis doesnt have closed nuts in r13, i did already email them. Im looking for ones just like the elephant racing link but, with the vw/audi ball radius of r13, Those porsche ones are r14 and too big for audi/vw wheels.. the two side by side: https://images.app.goo.gl/SJsfpEADuvgVeZDSA

can you turn the OD down in a lathe to make them work? or is it not a circumference thing.

its not just the OD its the actual radius of the ball seat portion. the link to a google pic in my previous post shows it decent.. I end up ordering a set of open end black ones from 'vivid racing', didnt receive em yet, will see. Me wanting closed ones was mostly aesthetic so i'll deal with it i guess.. Looking forward to having studs instead of bolts though!

I know this is super not recommended, and I would tell people not to when I worked at Rennline selling a ton of wheel hardware, but I run Rennline R14 nuts (which are just rebranded OEM Porsche) on a few cars, and honestly the contact patch between the seat/nut is pretty identical to what I get with R13 hardware. I've had them on auto-x/track/ice racing and have about 20k between all that and daily duties on my current set.
