Spacers... Now need longer locking wheel bolts


Registered User
Bought some 10mm spacers but not sure how to go about ordering some locking wheel bolts...

It asks me loads of questions which i dn't know the answer to.

My car is a 56plate S3 with standard alloys and standard suspension.

Anyone fancy helping me??

Shaft length
Head size

Thanks in advance

Well a standard wheel nut thread is 27mm IIRC, so presumably with a 10 spacer you would need 37mm thread?

But please, anybody correct me if I'm wrong!


When I grow up, I want a 964!
Thread = M14x1.5
Seat = Radius
Head = 17mm

Then as Brad says, think standard length is 27.5mm so add 10mm to that.

Thanks everyone. If it was 40mm thread that would be alright and not too long? Ie catch anything on the otherside from being too long? Can't find any at 37mm

Give Graeme and PM on here (GnJ Motorsport) he sorted me out with some for my 10mm spacers

Got some McGuard Black Edition Locking Nuts if your interested, used them when i was running 10mm spacers, but have removed the spacers now as I was having rubbing issues with my coilovers. PM me if interested. George

40mm should be fine with 10mm spacers.

I assume 40mm would be sound with 12mm spacers aswell Damian?
