My rims came in today and i got a problem

My Racing Hart C5's came in today and I can't put them on. It came with some weird looking lugs that I've never seen before. Click here for pics It looks something like that. And how the hell am I suppose to insert these. So I went to autozone to buy some lugs and they fit but now I can't screw them on because the space between the lug and the rim is too deep and small. I hope somebody here knows what on talkin about. Please help.

Maybe they sent the wrong rims? Do german cars use these kind of lugs?

They sure did, other companies such as the german vehicles . like Volkswagen . have lugs you screw in , instead of screwing on . What you need to get are some lugs with a key the goes on top of the lugs that way you can reach deeper and properly tighten the rims on. Hope this helps

Hmm that picture of those wheel lugs don't look correct. Check this out. You may need something like this Linked Image

Usually RacingHarts have a small working area when you torque up those lugs onto your rims. They will probably require those type of lugs. If you do have the bolts already which sounds like you already have the proper ones since you went to the autostore.Discount Tire usually sells these lug key locks ask your local rim shop they should carry them. Here's what you may need

1 wheel lock key tool - above the longer chrome piece is the wheel locking device to the left.

Lug nuts (5 bolt application) That use the same lock key tool so you'll be able to remove and put on your rims.

1 lug nut installation tool

3 To the right are the wheel locks they also require a key locking device if you plan on puting wheel locks to project your investment.

The center with the black rubbers are what's inside your rims if you already have tires on your rims most likely you have those. "those are the valve stems where you put the air"

Anyway most likely it just sounds like you'll just need to get a wheel lock key tool. I use reverse locking lugs they are they same concept except the key has an inverted pattern when bolting the rims down.

Hope this helps ya out a bit! Lemme find a pic of how my rims are installed.

Werd those will work completely fine. Thanx for the pic I have the same reverse wheel locking lugs. Mine are ICW reverse wheel locks. Either one is compatible but the pic above with the threads in the lugs is not the correct bolt. Celica lugs are inner threaded.

Obviously I can't use a regular crowbar or wheel lug bar (whatever you call it)to screw and unscrew the lugs and that is normal? All Need is the wheel lock kit and I'm set. Thanks for the info. Pics coming soon!
