Nuts....

Just a quick silly one.....

Anyone fitted aftermarket wheel nuts they would recommend? Plenty out there but experience tells me there not all that good...

Genuine from Rimmer bros are 11 each! Need 8 and think 88 quid is a bit much!!

^^^this, they are a bit bigger so just mind and have a suitable wheel brace. They are much better as they are solid so don't fall to bits like our standard ones sometimes like to do

Cheers chaps. Any particular model Mazda and when you say bigger presume you mean actual size as opposed to the shoulder size?

Any nut with a 60 degree taper to fit a M12 x 1.5 will work.

I normally use a 19mm socket on my wheel nuts, the Mazda 6 uses 21mm.

There are some options from my ebay search for 19mm 60 M12 1.5 - http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_fr...2+1.5&_sacat=0
