RE: aftermarket wheels...

Any competent wheel shop should be able to order you the correct lug bolts.  
The stud and nut works fine but the best thing to get is the lug bolts.  I 
cant remember what brand the ones I got were but I think they were Gorilla.

Seems the fellow that owned my 4kq believed the all wheel drive was the same 
as 4X4, all four wheels are damaged. I found some really nice rims finally 
with the correct fitment and now the problem is as follows...

My lug bolts will not seat..Their lug bolts will not fit..
their solution is to put lugs on the hub and fit lug nuts to these..
they are placed from the front with hex wrench until firm (not tight 
as this puts them out the rear of the hub)
Is this common..?? Is this SAFE????  Should I have the originals 
repaired..( Rennsport Atlanta   110$ a wheel  guaranteed...to look 
perfect..)  Help....
