Default Lug Kit?

I was going to purchase some german made wheels (Alutec) and the guy told me that the wheel will fit but they dont have the kit for the PT.

What is this KIT? A lug nut? A bolt? How difficult is it to find a kit? Anyone out there go through this?

Thanks

Hmm, maybe a hub adapter ring. Maybe some thin wall lug nuts, maybe some wheel spacers. Maybe all of the above in one package. That's the only thing that comes to my mind. Maybe some one with experience with these wheels or supplier can be more helpful.

Can you get these at any wheel / tire specialty store? are they safe?

Well, i am not a big fan of thin wall lug nuts because the joker's that use them around here (Wisconsin) are usually on their 500 dollar cars with 1500 dollar rims and tires. And they have never seen antiseize so they are all rusted on. If you are gonna use them, please use antiseize on the lug nuts or easier, the lugs themselves. The adapter rings are made of either a real hard rubber, or a plastic (depending). These i have not had any problems with, just remember to put them on. Your lug nuts pretty much center the wheel, but these help. You can get them at any rim store, jsut finding the one to fit perfectly will be hard.
