Want to have different wheels?

Kmart is selling "spinner hub caps" for $29.95 for a set of four.

It was listed in today's paper.

Have you taken them off and looked on the back? I have ended up getting three sets of rims in the last 2 weeks and all three sets of aluminum had the weight limit marked on them.

What are the pros & cons Lug Nuts vs Lug Bolts?

Never thought of it before, but it would be alot easier to have a stud to "hang the wheel on til you got the first fastener started I guess.

Now if you switched from bolts to nuts how would you secure the stud into the drum.....loc tite?

Are the bolts readily still available?
What are their specs or description? Mine are plenty rusted.

My 73 Argosy has the same wheels. BTW I want to shine them.
Do I use the same techniques as polishing an exterior?

Wheel studs are pressed in from the back side. They have a splined section to keep them from turning. If the back side is machined flat then all you have to do is Drill to the correct size and press them in. The the rear wheel studs from a 73-87 four wheel drive K10 full size truck should do the trick.

I recently shined a set. Start with 1000 grit wet dry, go to 1500 wet dry and finish with good aluminum polish. You can final finish by rubbing with plain old cooking flour...yes it works.
