Hello Folks 

I've just tidied my steel wheels up (standard steel jimny wheels from a 2008) I was looking at the shiny silver style wheel nuts to go against the black steel wheels (painted) and just wanted to make sure i get the right ones as there seems to be loads of different options. Will buy from the shop on here if available but just making sure I'm ordering the right ones...Thanks

Steel and alloys wheels use the same thread size, but it is my understanding that the taper angle is different, although I might be wrong, they might be the same. I think the taper angle is 60 degrees, but Martin will know and probably has them all in stock.

Thanks DrRobin! - yes - some of the tapers look like they would slip through the hole in the steel wheel which is what started me off on a confusion run!

Original whels and nuts are all the same taper and size on alloy and steel. (Based on experience and my 05 jimny)
However if there is aftermarket nuts or alloy wheels those nuts and or wheels might not fit each other.
