hello all

iv sourced some hub adapters to fit some disco2 alloys on my disco 1 but the question is is it ok to use some smaller standard nuts of some sort because wheel nuts (steel or alloy) are too large so wont sit flush

they have been designed this way and iv been told to find some nyloc nuts

I dont do alot off off roading and when i do its by no means extreme

any advise apreciatted

theres a pic for the fun of it ignore the bike unless your in to that sort of thing :P

Your spacers should have come supplied with nuts.

Standard nylocs won't be any good - they must be tapered (like your standard steel wheelnuts) in order to hold the spacer on correctly. PLEASE don't use ordinary nuts as you will have serious problems getting the spacers to centre correctly, let alone stay on the hub.

ok, the adapters i was looking at are smaller than the others hence why they need smaller nuts i could counter sinch the adapter and use some tapered nuts of some sort but they will have to be smaller than standard steely wheely nuts

or i pay out a bit more and get the larger offset ones which use alloy wheel nuts all round

and yes the bikes have a bit more 'travel' the other one has 10 inches :P

this one only has 8
