Actually I left them installed when I put the factory wheels back on. Oddly 
enough I dicovered they are metric on the end that fits the hub (of course 
we knew that), but they are 'standard' thread on the other end. I had to 
replace a lug nut, and had a hell of a time finding the right nut when 
looking through the metric section!
