Default I think I may have got the wrong wheels



I have a 2005 saab 9-2x linear.

I bought some 17x7 ADR Phantom wheels with 42mm offset off of ebay.
I went from the WRX fitment instead of the Imprezza fitment

Sooo...

Am I screwed or what? The problem being I think the wheels are made for lug bolts and I have lug nuts with bolts attached to the hub. When I drop the lug nuts inside the wheels holes their is no room for a lug wrench to get a hold of it to tighten it.

Can I get a longer lug nut that will fit(that extends ou farhter than the face of the wheel)with room left to get the wrench on?

Anyone know a good place to get these or a part# to help me out?

Thanks from a Newbie

'Tuner' nuts... McGard... Gorilla... M12x1.25

WRX is the same wheel fitment as any other Impreza (barring 05 STi)... +42 is a poor choice of offset though it has nothing to do with your lug fitment problem

my bad...I have them in +48 offset and going to run 225/45's on them

So 1.25 will be long enough for the tuner nuts? I did some searching on the Summitt site and saw the length all the way up to 1.75.

I just want to be sure...im newbie nervous

1.25 is the thread pitch not the length

see I am a newbie...

So these are not any longer, just thinner walled so you can get a wrench on them?

As I said my stock nuts almost touch the walls of the holes of the new wheels.

Sorry if this is obvious to a lot of you but Im here to learn and I learn by the wisdom and expierence of others. No patronizing intended.

So to confirm again 12x1.25 tuner lugs are all I need?

Yes. You need tuner lugs. Not just for the size, but the seat of the lugs.

12x1.25 tuner lugs. Subydude carries a lot of options, or I'm sure if you go to your local tire shop, they have them also.
