On Q1, it depends on what wheels and spacers you are going to use. Longest will surely work but may be less sightly and heavy.

Q2: I'll post soon

Re: lugnuts

Their are a bunch of ways you can go. There are tons of choices in 12 mm and the JDM cranks those out. in 14 mm you have to look a little more. In you're using most wheels, OEM included, you need 60 deg taper seats, not ball type.

So you have a choice of materials:

1 - Normal steel, with various plating types
2 - High Strength Steel Alloy
3 - Aluminum
4 - Titanium

OEM are #1. On my FWD racer, I use #3 on the rear and #2 on the front drive wheels to save weight. The cost of #4 is out of reach.

The so called "Tuner Lugs" are ones with fancy heads. It is also easy to find locking type nuts too.

Just Google 14 X1.5 lug nut

Hey Jim,

Are the 14 X 1.5 for the newer Rs or the 850/70 series? As I recall the threads are different for the two different models.

Is 14 the thread pitch?

What does the 1.5 signify?

14mm OD

metric pitch is spec'd as turns per mm, thus 1.5
