Wheel Bolts


Recommended Posts

Looks like I need some new wheel bolts as this happened.

 

Anyone recommend a source, I’m 

presuming eBay etc to be avoided, or does it not matter as ‘it’s a bolt’..

 

Probably going to get replacements for all wheels as other may be corroded too.

I got a whole new set of Porsche ones for mine from frazerparts. No complaints, good price and arrived quickly. Think there’s 10% off if first purchase.

 

I don’t think there’s anything special about them so maybe febi ones also are suitable.

I got a set from Eurocarparts; fairly reasonable price and you can often find discount codes.

 

While the service manual is fairly strict on replacing the bolts with any sign of corrosion to the sleeves, a lot of specialist garages don't seem to think it's worth it for some reason. I'd at least replace the ones with major "flaking", in any case (e.g. the bottom of the 2 in your first picture). Small cost, in the bigger picture.

 

Make sure you lube up correctly, too!

I'm not sure the prices are that steep that you need to "lube up"... :)

 

sorry...
