Common question I get, possibly daily, is what lug nut do I need for my wheels and disc brake kit? Answer; It depends.
All out brakes use a 14mm x 1.50 stud so that is going to be a common theme here but your wheels, will determine what kind of lug will be needed to affix the wheel properly. If you are running stock steel wheels, you need a Ball Seat Open Lug Nut, like these
. If you are running a Smoothie/BRM from Airkewld, you need a 60 Degree Conical Lug Nut, like these
. If you are running a Porsche wheel of any kind, you need a Ball Seat Closed Lug Nut, like these
. If you are running EMPI 5 Spokes, they call for a 12mm x 1.50 studs and use what is called a Mag Lug with a washer, like these
