"Wobble nuts"
Never heard of them myself but this is what they claim to do

"These nuts have been designed with a floating washer attached, which can move approximately 1-1.5mm in a 360 degree circumference. This allows a wheel of correct centre bore size (hub centric) to fit several different PCD applications whilst still keeping the nut centralised and parallel within the recess pocket of the wheel avoiding cross threading the stud. Also known as wobble nuts. "

Can't think the floating washer would float for very long when exposed to sea water, anyone know of/used them?

Sounds like the sort of wheel nuts you used to get with alloy wheels back in the "cortina" days .
The days when if it fitted "sort of" it was ok and you checked your wheelnuts were tight every week .

This is from the dim and distant past but I've a feeling the taper is a different angle on metric and imperial wheels. I could easily be wrong but it's worth a wee check.

I think I may have one of each type somewhere. I'll check tomorrow, if I remember.

Edit: I remembered where they are and just had a look. This is for two 10" wheels one with 4" PCD and the other with 100mm PCD. They are very different. The 4" wheels appear to have stud holes sized for 3/8" or 7/16" clearance so about 10 or 11mm dia. The 100mm wheel has stud hole of 15mm dia and a steep taper. I guess these are meant to fit M12 studs. I'd bet the nut for the 4" wheels would go through the hole of the 100mm and maybe bottom out against the hub before they properly tightened the wheel. They would also contact on only a limited part of the taper because of its larger diameter. These wobble nut things would need to be substantially larger diameter than the standard nut for a 4" wheel.

DON'T EVER put metric PCD wheels on imperial sized studs or vice versa. Yes, they look like they'll fit, but as mentioned above, it will all end in tears....... The cyclic forces on a wheel are a lot bigger than you might think, and at 10" / 50mph the half ton or so force (plus the dynamic loads of potholes etc which will make the half ton deadweight look like a stroll) is cycling round the nuts 30 times each second. Just don't mess with wheel fixings!

One to investigate is the wheels on the Indispension "Vario" Jetski trailer. I had one of them under my SR, and it was fitted with 13" wheels. I forget the PCD, but I remember having to buy the spare wheel for that trailer simply becuase none of the other 13" wheels I could find would fit. Now, seeing as most 13" wheels either have either 5.5" PCD or a metric PCD, you might find this will fit as it is a slightly obscure combo of sizes.

Apologies I can't be more definite at the moment - it is but a distant memory.

Changing hubs is too expensive (braked) and I did wonder about some sort of stud adapter, any thoughts or suggestions?
Hi,
Have a couple of 13"alloy Ginetta wheels with a 4" PCD going spare.The tyres are just legal and one of the centre caps is missing but they are in good nick.Also come with eight chrome spigot wheel nuts.They were put on Ebay last night but if you want them give me a call on 07767 702104.
