    I have STI McGuard spline nuts but one is missing - if you can find a spare one you can have them for small money

    Sure if you use a locking nut you only need 16 anyway

    Hello opening this up as a long shot. I got these from Dara but as he only had 15 left i am missing 1 to make a set with the lock nuts. Does anyone have any idea where i might be able to get 1 of these to make the set? Cheers in advance.

    Hey thanks for the reply. I have already been in touch with them and below their response

    "Unfortunately we no longer stock these as our supplier can no longer get hold of them.

    I have just had a quick look around our workshop for one but we don’t have one laying around.

    Not really sure of where else to try I’m afraid."

    I have also emailed mcgard direct to which they said even though made by Mcgard they are a subaru part as they have STI written on them. I doubt very much Subaru Ireland could get a hold of 1?

    That won't work as only have 15 sti mcgard nuts unfortunately. So 1 wheel has 3 STI,1 lock nut & 1 leftover from old set. Not great. Already have full set of lock nuts.

    So after an awful lot of persuasion i have managed to contact Mcgard Germany who after begging got in direct contact with Mcgard in Japan who managed to supply 1 gold STI wheel nut delivered to me. So i made the payment including tracking for €18 for 1 wheel nut. Now fingers crossed no wires were crossed and they send the correct one. I did send photos etc as i could not find part number to which they guarantee it will be the same one. Worth chasing it up though. Will let you know when it arrives. Happy out.

    Red Power motorsport - They have range of forged steel bolt nuts
    He has the right to have and share his opinion. The fact that his opinion differs from reality, is however irrelevant.
