Well you sold me... Just ordered the wheels and can't wait.... What lug nuts did you have to get??

Re: 2013 Alpine Edition build thread

lugs are some sort of spline style. local shop had them. Concavo should really put a set of lugs in with the wheels.

I had the alignment done the other day only thing out of spec is caster but that won't matter to the tires. I'll post the sheet later today everything else is well within spec. the front tires squared up quite a bit. couple pictures from the first C&C even yesterday.

Well after those pics I'm completely sold and happy I did those wheels... Thanks again. The truck looks amazing, I'm going to do the rear control arms... I'm assuming they helped a lot? Especially getting the rear into spec? If you have a chance do you think you can take some pics of how the fenders look after you trimmed them? I still might do it incase I have 4 people in the car (which is rare)... How is the steering with the caster off? I wish there was something on the market that allows us to get the front back into spec as well. Thanks again man and job well done!!

Re: 2013 Alpine Edition build thread

plan on not cutting anything I bet you'll be fine. steering feels fine overall it actually doesn't feel much different from stock. and yes i would absolutely do the control arms.

Well I hope I don't have to....just ordered the rest of the parts (rear control arms and RM Mid springs) just a waiting game for everything to get here now. I'm super excited and a bit impatient lol. Thanks for your help. The alignment sheet looks great... The caster isn't bad at all. And it's crazy they got the fronts that straight... They did a good job. The control arms must help ALOT.

Re: 2013 Alpine Edition build thread

Any way you could find out the type of lug nut you needed to get, got a set of concave's coming myself and the last thing I want is to get held up by not having the right kind of lug nut on hand. BTW, looks really good. I went with the other model of concavo off of Black Ops.

Re: 2013 Alpine Edition build thread

yes. Lugs are Duplex Spline style 14x1.50

these would work fine: Amazon.com: Duplex Spline Drive Acorn 14x1.5 Lug Nut Kit 20 Pc Set with Key: Automotive

Here are Gorilla ones: http://www.amazon.com/Gorilla-Automo...3JSXYE6QQV6WCE


I was able to source mine from a local wheel and tire place.

and make sure you guys post pictrues when you get the wheels on!!

Re: 2013 Alpine Edition build thread

Hey thanks for the heads up I'll have to see if I can find a machined finish as I didn't go with black and chrome would look off I'm guessing.
