i have wheel spacers on my renegade, but i used the ones i linked to, to secure the spacers to my renegade. they are a solid construction so they wont cause issues like the stock ones. they are solid steel and seem fine to me. i used a pair of wire cutters to pull the lip up around that one lug bolt and a pair of regular pliers to pull it off in about 30 seconds. its just thin steel, and its just for looks and cheap to make for the company.Oh, man!!! Now I see what you guys are talking about! I had no idea those were capped like that. I thought that was the actual steel bolt, and maybe chromed.
What the hell is that cap made of -- aluminum? Or is that just thin steel? What the hell -- just for looks??
So peeling these caps off permanently wouldn't work, since the resulting bolts would be even smaller than 17" (yes?) and would take even less torque if they'd been put on by a gorilla with an impact wrench.
Or are those caps at all easy to permanently remove?
You said you'd replaced yours. With the ones you linked to? 28mm Acorn Seat Lug Bolt 20pc Kit (Black) M12x1.25 | 17mm Hex | eBay
Are they any good? They're 17mm, so the OEM lug wrench would work... But I'm a bit skeptical of eBay...
Sorry about all the questions, but I had. No. Idea.
my wheel spacers had studs, so i used these to hold my wheels onto the spacers.
