In the rules it states that any bolts without a lock nut (nylock) needs wire-tied. Does this include the wheel nuts? We don't want to drill holes through our nice lug nuts if we don't have to so if someone could inform us that would be great! Smile

Cheers!

Why not just use Nylocks for lug nuts?

In fact you would be foolish not to do so as far as I am concerned.

#1 - Curious, where in the rules does it say any bolt without a nylock needs to be wire-tied?
 
#2 - Please post such discussions in the Design Discussion (I have already moved the thread)

"B14.2 Fasteners Captive
Fasteners must be made captive through the use of NYLON locknuts, cottered nuts or safety wired bolts (in blind applications). Lock washers or thread sealants do not meet this requirement."
If you don't use it you lose it

B14.1 Fasteners in the driver restraint systems must meet the following guidelines (new) (then after that you read B14.2, B14.3...)
