hi all can anyone help i have a mk4 escort van on an 88 plate with old steel wheels obviously i want to put some allys on but i cannot find the bolts to fit (not nuts) you would think with the power of the internet it wouldn't be a problem these days so i have got a few sets but all the same not wide enough to offer good grip(don't want them coming off) any idea of a good supplier of bolts would be very helpful thanks in advance

It was actually those that got me asking my question.thinking those are what he has found so far.

 

The bolts in the listing are 1mm narrower at the head than standard and also Require use of a 17mm hex spanner/socket. This will be different to the standard Ford 19mm wheel brace

Hi

Most Ford nuts for alloy wheels have a captive washer which I assume rotates as you torque them to prevent wear in seat on wheel. Have not seen if they were available in bolt form.

What are the exact wheels if Ford items what model are they fitted too. This may allow you to find correct Ford bolt.

Are you actually up to speed on wheel fitment and suitable wheels?

 

It is not just wheel nuts/bolts holding any wheels on.

 

The wheel centre hole must be the correct size to fit the hub spigot or possibly have an appropriate spacer.

 

Wrong wheels are a serious safety issue - not just to yourself
