Just ordered a set myself. Thanx so for the link, and kudos to USMB for the fine service.

ByeBye! S.

I'm using them & they work well.
One thing that I noticed when I removed a wheel once is that the washers looked beat up and may require some coaxing to extract them from the wheel.

an alternative even to ordering them is find your local VW performance shop, (we have one here called discount import parts) and ask for the Acorn to Ball lug Adapter. i was able to get in the same day a full set of 16 for $12.

this is what I got.

not to completely change my mind here but could i bring them out tuesday. i will be out in that way on tuesday and could stop by. i mean i will do it tomorrow because i said i would, but i would have to make a special trip just for that. But if you need them real bad tomorrow i could still come out.
