Spoke with Mod Bargains today and looks like ill be ordering some Avant Garde m310 in hyper silver for my Sbm g8. 19/8.5et 35 and 19/9.5 et 43.

I was wondering what else i would have to order, TPMS? Locking Nuts? Hub rings?

If anyone knows if i need those, i would appreciate it if you let me know where i can buy some. Perfer chrome or silver Locking nuts!

Also would you go Hankook v12 or Falken Azenis for just street driving and comfort. 275 and 245 would be the tire sizes!

I would get TPMS, lugs, and rings.

Mcgards or gorilla are great for lugs. Rings you can get from DT or eBay. 72.6 to 67.1 TPMS, I'd suggest eBay as well.

can you reuse the tpms from your stock wheels?
Lol, not sure if your askin him if he needs them still in his old wheels, but....

In general though, you can reuse them between different sets of wheels.

Hubcentric rings can be ordered from Discount Tires website.
Check out Amazon for the Gorilla lugs.
Put out a WTB on the boards for the TPMS if you don't trust eBay sellers to have the right ones, but the a bunch that will work.

Hey guys, I dont run the wheels in the OP, but I recently ordered some lugs from summit racing last week. Also got a set of locking ones too. Check these part numbers on their site. I know the order says black chrome but they are matte black and match my VMR 701's nicely. Hope this helps.

Just a heads up. The McGards that are mentioned a few times in various threads DO NOT FIT THE M310's.

[ame]http://www.amazon.com/McGard-64024-Chrome-Black-Thread/dp/B0028090OC[/ame]


I had to return them to Amazon and pay a restocking fee. They are WAY TO BIG. The Discount Tire guys heckled me and asked if I bought lugs for an 18 wheeler.


Gorilla Locking Acorn style is what I am running now and they do fit.

^ I reused my TPMS so not sure where to refer you? I did get some hub centric rings that I referenced a web site to in my build thread.

The Gorilla Locking set is part # 71643N, Acorn, 5 lug, 14mm x 1.5

Black Chrome is part # 71643NBC

:judge:Morning fellas, I just got the 310's yesterday and I am waiting for lugs to come in. I ordered these

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/mcg-84527/media/images

(Hope that link does not break sponsor rules)

Couple posts above said they dont fit... If this is true, there is still time to call and switch the order. This is my first set of wheels I have ever put on a car so I am a bit confused why these wouldnt fit? Is it the socket size around the lug?

Can someone provide a working link to the lugs that fit the best, and have great quality?

I just want to get these wheels on the car ASAP!!!!!

Thank for all the board help, helps ease the learning curve. :judge:

If the McGards you ordered are the same as the Amazon link that put in my post above they will NOT fit. The link you provided is a kit and doesn't describe the style of lug. The Cone Seat Style is way too thick to fit into the holes. Even with the thinnest socket they had (Discount Tire) they would have scratched it all up. They brought me in the garage and showed me.

The Gorilla part #s above will work. Do your own search from whatever vendor has them to your liking.
