    Lug Nut Issue

    Im having trouble finding the right length lug nut to fit on my car. I have rotiforms on it and theyre 20x10.5 et 45 and I use 30mm spacers in the back and 15 in the front. Thats the only way itll clear the calipers. Does anyone whats the length of the original rs6 bolt and how long would I need it to be to fit because mine arent long enough.
    Thanks

    If you are using 30mm spacers and using the threads in the stock hubs, this is not recommended.

    See H&R's guidelines on this.

    I recall that any spacer over 20mm has a new set of threaded holes for the wheels to attach to. The spacers bolt to the hubs and the wheels bolt to the spacers using the stock lug bolts.

    You can check to see what the manufacturer of your spacers suggests and maybe they can find you the proper length bolts if they say it's OK.
