  1. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    Hey everyone, I'm trying to replace some lug bolts that I accidentally sheared off, thought it would be a simple thing. Turns out, they didn't engineer this hub assembly too well for replacing any lugs very easily. Is there anyway to just pull the hub off without having to remove the entire...

    just wondering if Kia's OEM locking lug nuts are worth the investment? Or would a professional thief be able to easily bypass them? Granted they are only $55, but they are a hassle when you have a flat tire. So if they would not really deter a professional, I don't know that I want them

    Does anyone know the stock lug nut length? I'm using the stock lug nuts on my aftermarket wheels, and I was going to get the Varrstoen V75 Super Extended Lug Nuts which are 75 mm (3 in) long. Just wondering on the difference in length so I know if these would look too long compared to the ones...

    I have a 2013 Optima SX that came standard with the 8 spoke Luxury wheels. Short story I sold those OEM wheels when I got my custom wheels thinking I could run the customs through the winter. Custom wheels ended up peeling clear coat. Back on the market for a set of OEM wheels for "winter"...

    The reason I asked this is that I work in a very bad neighborhood. I see wheels getting stolen everyday. So is there any good wheel locks out there?

    Hello everyone. I'm trying to get a set of extended lug nuts and I'm trying to figure out which one fits our cars. Does M12x1.5 fit or M12x1.25 fit? If someone can give me an input here, that would be great. Thanks in advance!

    Yo - Looking into some splined lug nuts for my new wheels because I've noticed that on the OEM lugs, where the cone meets the hex edges, they hit the top of the recess area on the wheels. I'd imagine this is not how this should work; I'm guessing you want the lug and wheel recess cone to mate...

    I want to get different lug nuts on my wheels, not sure what size though. Does anyone know the right size for the 13' lx? And the rims I've got are Sparco Assetto Gara. I'd appreciate feedback, thanks

    Hi everyone!!! I am looking to buy lug nuts to install my new rims and have a few questions and opinion of which one I should get. I know I need 12mm x 1.50 for the tread size, but what about the size of the nut itself? With lug nuts, I am debating between Muteki lug nuts and Gorilla Lug...

    I have no clue about tires/rims but ordered the Nurburgring Matte Gunmetal 20x8.5 from ebay and they do not come with lug nuts. Will the oem's fit or do i need to order the installation kit? Below is what the seller sent me should i order one of these? He also said they're just standard acorn...

    Hi everyone! Got a 3 week old EX with 17" stock rims. I bought the spare tire package online (can't believe it didn't come with one) and I wanted to get an old fashioned (but new) lug wrench to more efficently change a tire if needed, rather than the single "toy" lug wrench it came with.* Does...

    What's the torque spec for tightening on a 2012 EX like 70-80lbs?
  17. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Let me set this up... Just bought a 2013 EX and then purchased some 2012 SX rims w/tires. The rims did not come with lug nuts, can I simply use the lug nuts off of the 17"factory rims off of the 2013, or is it protocol to get lugs specifically for 18" rims. I dont know if it matters, just want...

    Well, much to my dismay, when I started to loosen the lug nuts to start to swap in my new wheels, I found that some were tight as [email protected]@rds and others were so loose I'm surprised they haven't fallen off! Literally I think I could take a couple off with my fingers :( I have no idea if the car...

    My son just bought the EX with 17" wheels. I am shocked that it didn't come with a spare tire or wheel lug nut locks. I called my dealer today to see if I can order a spare tire kit but they said that it wasn't available yet. I ordered lug nut locks online but I don't what size lug nut wrench to...
