    Default c2 knock off lug nuts

    Could someone help id Pre 67 knock off lug nuts. There is Id confusion at some of the corv. parts sites. I will submit
    3 photos 2 of the lug nuts and 1 of the adapter. I have
    noted that the adapter does not seem to have a bevel for
    the tapered nuts. Maybe someone could comment on this
    as well.
    Thanks

    Michael, The first pic is of a '64-'66 KO wheel adapter nut, second pic looks like for aftermarket wheel, third pic is a repro adapter for '64-'66 KO wheel. The adapter does have a bevel, it's just hard to see in the picture. Bill

    The second photo is a long-shank aftermarket lug nut and washer used on reproduction '67 bolt-on aluminum wheels; the original bolt-ons used the same standard lug nuts as used with stock steel wheels.

    I believe I understand , there are 3 different nuts used
    depending , the standard lug nut 56-82 used on steel and original 67 BOLT ON wheels. The longer tapered lug nut used on original and repo KNOCK OFF wheels 64-66 . The long shank lug nut as you describe used on new style repro DIRECT BOLT ON wheels 64-67

    I believe this is correct
    thanks

    I'm not familiar with the details of the direct-bolt reproduction knock-offs, but the long-shank lug nuts are used on the reproduction '67 bolt-on wheels (RPO N89) - photo below.
