I am missing some wheel lugs, possible to order some? Also, read info.

When I was putting my 17" wheels on this spring, I couldn't find my lugs. The front wheels have all 5 lugs, one wheel in the back has 4 and one has 3. I figure replacing those lugs wouldn't be hard, but I completely forgot about it. I wanted to do it and postponed it and forgot, and now I'm looking on the internet and I can't find anyone who's selling them in my vicinity. Would car part shops happen to have these?

Also, biggest issue: The previous owner made some of those "safety lugs" for the wheels. Each wheel would get a different type of lug to make sure the wheels couldn't be stolen. I have only found 3 of these lugs. They can only be taken off with a corresponding tool extension, which I do have. Could I take that extension and have some metal shop make it for me?

Also, Im in Bosnia, Europe.

EDIT: I just managed to find lugs...I'm dumb. Also, there's nothing stopping me from ordering four new safety lugs, right? It just needs to fit the hole that's been expanded. Right? Would be easier than having someone make just one for me.

Lugs? You mean wheel bolts/locks?

Yes he'll mean wheel bolts and locking wheel bolts.

Std are M12x1.25 thread, 23mm long with a taper seat.
The length you require may be different if you have aftermarket wheels.
159/Brera used M14, but I'm sure all other Alfa and most Fiat used M12x1.25, so shouldn't be too hard to find new or used wheel bolts to suit.

Shouldn't be difficult to find wheel bolts, so no excuse for driving for months with three missing.....

I have found a place where I can buy the normal bolts. And I found a place where I can get the safety ones. I guess I'll take the tool extension to them and see if there are any on sale that fit it.

Post a picture of the "tool extension" .. I'm reading this as the "lock nut key".

And a pic of the head of one of the "safety" ones ... some are an obvious make.
