New to me GT

Had the GT a week and decided to go and get the tracking set,as it has a steering wheel wobble over 60mph.
Thanks to a hamfisted oaf, it seems that at least 3 or 4 of the wheel studs have been crossthreaded and there is even 1 missing (should have noticed it really). been through the service history and there is reference to there being 2 spigots missing too. As kwikfit wouldn't take the wheels off, I'm unsure of the size and quantity required, so I suppose a full set of studs and spigots are needed. I believe that the wheels fitted (20 spoke 18") are not the standard wheel. they don't have the chunk of ally between each spoke. Could anyone tell me which model they are from and possibly what size spigots are required. Thanks.

They should be bolts, not studs+nuts, so I think that will mean you'll need a new hub thanks to damaged threads.

Those are 18 inch 'Jetfins' and were indeed a factory option.

I have them on mine, no problems at all

Spigot probably means these things.

Used to help locate the wheel and keep the brake disc aligned, not massively important.

All the best

Spigot- it's a great word.
