Wheel Stud consideration.... Ball vs Conical

Through a series of issues with new wheels I ordered and now are being replaced... my replacement order was cancelled and they changed SKU to ‘correct’ SKU. This caused me to verify the supposed mixup, because I checked the wheels for fit... temporarily mounting them on car. Then removing them. So... naturally when I found out they changed the wheel SKU I called back... “hey I checked these... why did you change SKU and offset from 25 to 27mm”.

Turns out the original SKU used a ball lug vs Conical. So the seat would have been wrong...

Moral of story. Double check you lug/seat type when ordering wheel set.

I got lucky, it turns out, that my first set got boogered up by UPS.

Happy Motoring!
