question on WC51 combat rim nuts

Post by thunder37 » Sun Apr 14, 2019 6:18 pm


I know the wheel lug nuts come in LH and RH versions, but what about the outer ring nuts? I don't see anyone selling "LH or RH" outer ring nuts, so I guess they are all RH thread?

I was just wondering...

All are RH thread, there was no need for LH as the rotational mass (concept) of nuts backing off has no impact on the outer rim bolt/nuts.
