Titan wheels.

Recommended Posts

I see a lot of pics of 620’s with Titan wheels.

In this reference pic does anyone know if this is with spacers or is that the regular offset?

If spacers how thick?

Spacers typically used with Titans are 1/4". Won't be able to tell from a pic

 

To run them without spacers you can get the hubs machined.

There is also the option to router the inner hole.

I finally got some 18” Titans. 

Question for others who have these - the lug nuts, are they supposed to be the cone / tapered seat style or the kind with a washer and a short shank that drops in the hole?

The holes look like they need the shank style ones but the PO clearly used the cone taper style. 

Hope I’m explaining that somewhat clearly.

They need the lugs with the shoulder and washer. PO's are idiots. The cone style are dangerous as they don't support the vehicle weight properly on the rim

Damn. Guess I’ll have these reamed / drilled out to accept the correct ones. Again. Thanks!

No get the proper titan lug nuts. Never modify a mag rim.

Ya I have the correct ones - I meant I’ll need to have them reamed (just slightly) to accept them again. The cone style ones the POS PO used smushed the hole just enough to not let them drop in properly.

That should be doable correct?

Using this description for the OEM wheels, choosing #2 wheel

It suggests this part as being the OEM alloy wheel lug nut

So before doing something drastic, you may want to rethink your plans...

Hmmm...I think maybe the Nissan parts description or number is mixed up.

There are 2 part numbers listed.

1 is for the shank style,

1 is for the acorn style. 

But I think the descriptions are wrong / opposite.

Anyway...I think the 18” titans use the shank style lug nuts and the ones I have need a little “hole maintenance”. 

Thanks everybody.

There are 2 styles, yes.

 

One for alloy, aka aluminum wheels, and one for steel wheels.

 

The "shanked" style are for the steel wheels, acorn for the alloy.

 

A simple Google image search of the lug part numbers from the first link I posted proves this.

If you look closely at the steel wheel lugs you'll notice there is a foam rubber backing on the flange.  It's the buffer between the lug and the plastic wheelcovers that are used on the steel wheels.

All I know is the shank style and the cone style should not be interchanged. The V or cone shape will mess up the rim that requires the shank style. I don't know what you have for sure but they sure look like it would take these...

Nevermind, just do it your way, it'll work perfectly, lol.

 

I swear, I have no idea why I try to help here.  I mean the guy I had to correct about D21's never having KADE's says they take 1980's style deep shanks lugs...it must be true.

The description on the nisssn part page you posted is incorrect. 

 

90-CD585-D-F7-F8-4506-8529-07-EC101-F9-E

 

The description says alloy wheel but that part is the acorn style for steel wheels. 

 

Also...You would never ever use the shank style lugs with steel wheels.

If you notice I used quotations around the word shanked when I posted it the first time, because I was using your incorrect terminology as the separation of the 2 styles.

 

If you actually took the time to look at the 2 Nissan lug nuts they are both acorn nuts, one just has a flanged dress cap with rubber washer on it.

 

OEM steel wheel lug nut.

I too have the Titan wheels but they are 17's.....I did some research and also asked the tire guys.....use the "acorn" style lug nuts.

 

I bored my wheels out with a router, took about an hour and they look like they were done in a machine shop.

 

Also, those center caps are brittle as shit! Try not to break the tabs off......they want $55 for new ones and ebay prices are not much better!
