The Alloy Wheels on our new Ultratech 1800ccEML Trike are 18"

with 5 wheel studs, Dotz Alloys. Have been trying to locate

Locking Nuts for these alloys using Mcgard which had measurements

of M12 x 1.25, M12 x 1.50 and M12 x 1.75 none of which were correct

fitment for these Alloys, anyone out there have an idea of what size

wheel studs are used on the Ultratech Trike.

Best regards

John

Welcome to the board.

Could try emailing the supplier/manufacturer of the trike or a company like Lehman trikes

We have been in contact with EML in Holland but they havent returned the e-mail
So have tried the USA who have also this type of trike on the Market
Performance Tyres in Ireland need to know the size of the stud so that
they can supply the Mcgard locking nut

Your thread might be US SAE thread pitches you can buy thread pitch gauges in oth metric and sae that will help you figure out what the thread is. With trike conversion being add on to the wing there is a possibility it's not metric.

Tell Barry he should have supplied them. :cheeky1:



Seriously though, do you need them?



A pair are not really very attractive to thieves, especially if they don't know what cars they might fit.



We don't bother about that for the trike based on where it is kept and where we park. (Having said that, the CSC wheels are such a snug fit under the wheel arches, there is a real knack to getting them off.);)



We do take precautions against the whole thing being stolen though.
