    Gen6 and gen7 wheel nuts.

    Thanks, that'll be handy, I need to get some new wheel nuts now anyway as my lad has nicked mine for wheels on his Yaris t-sport.

    Wheels swapped side to side front to back makes no difference steering wheel wobbles the same for all positions. The wheels are the diamond cut ones from the gen7 but refurbished in silver. Using tapered nuts which I believe are correct for the wheel.

    Apologies for the delay, here's a pic of the back. I haven't had time to recheck the balancing of the wheel yet as been really busy but be hoping to bring this to some form of conclusion over the next few weeks.

    MOT Advisory

    MOT rules changed in May 2018 which effectively includes a "noise test" for the exhaust. The wording is quite vague though and will depend on the testers judgement.

    Thank s mate. The refurb company said they weren't buckled. Tyres and balancing done by a different company who also seemed happy with the result. Two of the wheels have 15g the other two 45g and I have tried rotating which makes no difference to the wobble. I will get the balancing done again but I wonder if it's something worn on the car that is made worse by bigger wheels. The car is my daily and didn't intend to spend to much money on modifications as I have other projects so don't want to go to crazy looking for something if the 15s work ok, which they do. Shame though as 17's really suit the car.

    Yes, I think that's a good plan. If they balance up ok and the problem is still there I'll probably just get some decent tyres for the 15's and sell these on knowing that it must be an issue on the car being made worse with bigger wheels. Shame though as they look lovely with the fresh refurb and decent new tyres.

    The centre bore is correct. Have been messing with cars for sometime so did think the tapered nuts looked correct for the wheels but always think it's worth checking these things with experienced owners when dealing with a "new to me" car. I shall leave the 15s on for now as it fine with those and continue to diagnose the wobble on the 17's.

    I believe they are standard wheels, the picture below is the same wheel perhaps someone could confirm?

    Gen6 and gen7 wheel nuts.

    I have purchased a set of OEM gen 7 wheels which have been refurbished, balanced and tyres added. They are 17 inch and want to put them on my gen6. Problem is when I do I get wheel wobble at about 70 and I'm struggling to diagnose why. I'm not sure if the bigger wheels are making an unnoticed problem worse (currently on 15s) or if there is another issue. The photo below is a OEM gen6 nut on the left and the nut on the right is what I am using on the 17s. Does anyone know what a OEM gen7 wheel nut looks like? I've also put a picture of the wheel hole below as well. Just wondering if I'm using the correct or wrong nut.
