Drilled mine out today like 1/16". I didn't realize how think the .190 wheels were. The stepper bit worked, but I had to drill 1/2 way and then flip over and drill other side. Wheels go on easy now, I hope there easy to remove as well. I also used stainless washer's and purchased the 10 mm x 1.25 flange bolts. The flange didn't seam large enough to cover the damage from the reversed oem lug nuts, which is why I used washer's too.

|xxcharger||I bought the ITP T-9 GP (Grand Prix) wheels for the front. They have steel reinforcements like stock and they look pretty sturdy too.|

|Baxter||The washers help out with the stock nuts and stop the flaring over. Got a set of DWT .125, 8x6 with Kutters 18x8x8 . Built for an Apache 100 quad. So much fun and way too grip ! Still around 50" though.|

Might be able to find them at a local hardware store. Nothing special about them, just a 10mm x 1.25 pitch flange nut.

The link you posted are the correct size and pitch, those will work.

Really!!! I just looked at RM not sure if there the right size and pitch, but $0.40 each! Gessh I should of sprung for 8 of these when I got the wheels. But remember reading on here awhile ago, all you had to do is flip the lug nuts...

I'm sure I over torque mine by the recommended 47 ft lbs. But the 1st time I put them on, there was a lot less tolerance when sliding over the studs than the oem 11" wheels. And also the 1st time I road on them set at 55 lbs I had a couple lug nuts come loose after a few hours of riding. I don't see how a flat lug nut compressed would smash the rim, but maybe that is the deal.
Sounds like I need some new lug nuts, before I re-install thx Doug...

What are you guys torquing your lugs to? I always use a torque wrench set to 47 ft-lbs, can't really say I have ever had a hard time removing any of my wheels from any of my quads. (95% of the sport quads use the same setup and I bet I own around 50 wheels.) If you over torque the lug nuts, they can squeeze the aluminum into the lugs themselves, hence the reason they are difficult to remove. I have noticed that some of my DWT wheels have little burrs around the holes. I always take a round file them to clean them up before use. I also have never used the stock lugs on any of my quads, I always replace them with flange nuts, figure the flange will distribute the force better.
I would be very cautious in drilling out the wheels. They should be a snug fit as that is what centers the wheel. Oversize holes could allow the wheel to shift around, could oblong the holes making thing worse.
