    Does anyone have the Gbody parts GN aluminum replica rims and used the lug nuts that came with them? I put one to check brake clearance and my socket is pretty tight up against the rim and when you run them down by hand there is only a very small section above the face of the rim. Didn't know if others have found a fancy thin wall socket or just changed lug nuts. I hat to scratch them up on the first install.

    Thanks

    Hey joel are those replica rims 15x8 or 15x10 . A picture of the rim mounted an lug nut would help a lot..

    I don't know the offset of those rims, but those are the wrong lug nuts,they should look like this. I know Brian has been hard to contact lately at GBody ,maybe try emailing him to get the correct lug nuts. Kirban has them part#6655.

    Subscribed as I just purchased these wheels too.

    My current socket also doesn't fit in the holes. Please let me know if you have a solution

    I tried one of my old rusty original lugs and they will work and the socket has clearance like Buckshot G/N mentioned. I went by 4wheelparts on the way home and picked up some splined lugs in black. They came with an install socket with even more clearance.

    Nice. I tried one of my originals and it fit also. I just ordered a new set from Kirban.
    What a pain in the ass
