Can i use my stock lugs with my 18's? Some guy at townfair tire told me i should buy "tuning" lugs from him because if i use the stock lugs with the rims my wheels could fall off when. Can anyone clear this up for me cuz ive never heard of this.

Stock lugs are a "ball" type seat. Many aftermarket wheels use a "tapered" lug. You may also need longer lugs for your new wheels.[wrench]

Don't use the stock lugs.

Protect your wheels and get some new lugs that you have to have a key to remove.

Lugs need to be matched to the wheels. Not all aftermarket wheels use the same lugs. Check with the wheel manufacturer on what lugs you need to use.
