The V6 and Evora use bolts with a moving washer ( the tapered part of the bolt) These are only available in silver ( wanted black for my car)

They are dimensionally the same as S2 bolts, but these do not have the moving washer

Hope this helps....

Thanks for the feedback.  [Ignorant mode on] What benefit does the moving washer give?  Is it necessary to use them or can you use the S2 wheel bolts?  I have a bunch of these in black!

They are better for aligning the wheel, and also wont take the paint off! I have titanium bolts, so cant comment, as they are fine.

They have nothing to do with bolt alignment or taking paint off wheels. They are used to give more consistent and even torque setting to the bolts.

 

 

 

 

 

Or the above :lol:

must admit, the Exige is the only car ive ever had them on.

Hallo Dave,

sorry ... I take this subject again (stopped for a while ...) to ask if, after a few years, there are any news regarding the commercial availability ( for sale ) of these black bolts (moving washers ...) for Exige V6 ?

cheers

@NANO just to chime in. Have been running the 'solid' black ones for over 4 years now with 3 different sets of wheels. Torque them with a torque wrench, slightly higher compared to the ones with the moving washer and you'll be fine. I do mine up a 115Nm.

Alternatively switch to wheel studs instead perhaps?

I thought about this, but no one seems to make nice looking ones, and from what I found they all have silver nuts which means you're back in the same situation as you started really.

Nice to have bolts which don’t go rusty!

I’m getting the ones from Elise Parts with the lightweight black wheel nuts

https://www.eliseparts.com/shop/wheels-and-tyres/nuts-bolts/wheel-stud-kit-all-s2-s3-models/

I'd like to see a photo of them fitted as the bolts look quite long.

Has anyone fitted a locking wheel nut to a 410 and what did you use?

I have only just realised that they don't come with locking wheel nuts!

I can't seem to find anything specific, are the wheel studs sold on Elise parts long enough? Was thinking to just put one on each wheel and get a standard locking nut.

Do you know if these will fit a Sport 410?

Thanks

NO they are too short for the rears on the cars with 285 tyres (Lotus fitted a 3mm spacer to the back of the wheel so these are too short by 3mm)

Thanks for the info Dave, I don't suppose anyone does supply them for the 410 Sport?
