Help..!! Wheel nuts for 987 needed


Recommended Posts

I’m a newbie to the boxster game and I’m loving my (new to me) 987. 

However, I’ve taken my wheels to be refurbed and they’ve told me that my nuts are rotten..(excuse the pun)! I need to get a complete set including locking nuts. 

Any recommendations. 

Thanks in advance👊🏾

Thy are about 7£ each various Porsche specialists sell them. Check with the OPC first they might be reasonably priced sometimes they can be surprisingly competitive.

Actually just checked Design 911 and they are £3.75 reduced!     https://www.design911.com/Porsche/Boxster-986-987-981/Boxster-S-981-34L-2012--/Wheel-Bolts/pt179_434_-cma81-cmo82-ct1741/

The Techworlddirect ones on eBay are fine. Correct floating collars etc.

It will be the collars that have corroded. Design 911's price looks good as above. Could also try Frazerpart and do a Google search for 987 wheel bolts - lots of options including full sets.

They don't look that shiny!

Don’t bother with locking wheel nuts - more hassle than they are worth.

I had some of these for my 987.1, they are very shiny! 

I put a new set of black OEM Porsche bolts on my current car.

Even doing the collars DIY for at seem to make much sense when you can get a full set for quite cheap. I can't imagine you would save much if anything sourcing and buying the collars as separate items.

So cheap, are these trustworthy?

As above I've been using the Techworlddirect ones since 2013. At that time nobody else on the forum seemed to have tried them.
