156 2.0JTS SW

Help - 156 "Wheel Nuts" - wrong one's ?

Can anyone shed some light ???

Today I have had to have some new tyres fitted - 156 SW 2.0JTS > 215/45 R17

(215/45 ZR17 Dunlop TL SP Sport Maxx XL 91Y - four tyres all inc €502.80 Premio Reifen Lörrach, Germany)

Think the GT type wheel - "see my avatar". Wheels are standard Alfa 156 Classic according to the tyre ctr.

The guy in the tyre centre says the wheel nuts (5 per wheel, non locking type) are the wrong size
The conical area is to small ??. Apparently the thread is ok

I have some photo's but unable to upload them here

I am hoping someone can help me as I'm worried - safety wise....
Can I order the right nuts somewhere ?

Hope this makes sense
Looking forward to some serious help
Thanks chaps, N

The alfa range on these older models has a wide array of wheel studs.Your best bet is to go to an Alfa breaker and get a set of cheap studs.Lenghts vary etc etc although the threads stay the same.
