    Gen1 with custom wheels - In search of custom lug nuts for front

    Hello everyone,

    I have a 2015 R8 Spyder V10 with some shiny new Zito wheels installed. The wheels are awesome, but I have one little quirk I would like to work out.

    The front wheels have very deep lug holes, so the lug bolts disappear from view, causing an odd look. Perhaps not terrible, but just a little odd.

    I would like to locate some lug bolts that have a taller head (not stem/thread length), so they will appear and blend with the wheel nicely.

    Unfortunately, I have a feeling a stud conversion may be necessary to solve the issue, but perhaps there is a bolt solution around.

    Bolt specs: 14x1.5, 28mm thread length, black, conical

    You could also do a stud conversion and run extended lug nuts.

    Those wheels look great, by the way! Zito does great work.
