I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on the staggered 17" RBR package for my '78 280z. I've seen some people talk about replacing the stock wheel studs and lug nuts with these wheels. Is this necessary or will the stock studs and nuts work? My car is used on the street, not the track so I'm not talking about the benefits of open lugs vs spline or things like that. I was just wondering if the stock studs and lugs will accommodate the staggered RBRs.  Thanks.

Since this thread has died down, i have started to offer these wheels as I just became a dealer for Rota.


I wouldn't trust the stock studs as they are old.  If anything at least replace them.  Keep in mind a negative offset like this puts the studs at "angle" so to speak.

I could turn around and get pretty much what I paid for these wheels upon resale....


pay for what you get man....Heavy Cast vs Forged



The vast majority of Watanabes are cast, not forged.
