Are We to Use Special Lug Nuts for BBS Wheels?

Well it turns out that I did not have wheel bearing failure but that the the lug bolts (threaded) backed out after I lots some lug nuts. (I have 320 hubs that had threaded holes)


Since I am using BBS wheels, is there a special lug nut that properly seats into the lug opening?

You have the E21 hubs?  They require 57.1mm hubcentric rims, depending on which BBS rims you have, you may need an adapter.  My BBS RS are from a SAAB, so I had to get some adapters for them.


As for the lug nuts, I think they're standard conical type (but may differ depending on which BBS rims you have).  Are you running lug bolts or studs/nuts?

I'd say the big thing is to realize there's a nut / bolt for steel wheels and a different nut / bolt for alloy wheels.
