    What's up with the new Cragar SS wheels and the conical bulge lug nuts??? I can get 7/16 20 RH but not LH I contacted Cragar and they have a #271003-4 BVT (Barracuda, Valiant, Dart) but I had to order them from Jegs or Summit or? I ordered from Jegs and they sent me 7/16 Conical no bulge. They were in Cragar bags and with the correct part number yet didn't look like Cragar lugs and in a Excalibur box. Also a special order so I have to eat the 32 bucks I spent (expletive!!!)
    I don't like the way they seat in the bores so I'm going to have to change my lefties to righties which I didn't want to do!!! Cragar should have stuck with the old shank type lug nuts. WHY ARE A BODIES ALWAYS A HORROR STORY WITH WHEELS!!! LMAO

    American Racing told me I could run conical bulge or just conical on my torque thrust. Said they had the same contact area. #-o

    That is the first thing I always did to any old Mopar with left hand studs. Change them to right hand. This is the 21st century. No place for that kinda obscurity. Stuff like that always ends up hangin you up.

    It's all bullcrap, too. Why anybody would leave them on is beyond me.

    "oh but I want my car 100%"

    Good grief.
