I noticed recently, much to my dismay, that one of my lug nuts is missing. Are these a specialty item, or is a similar item available through the local parts store? It's a '71 TR6. Thanks.

If they are original lug nuts, you will have to go through one of the Triumph parts distributors.

I'd be surprised if you couldn't find something to work at least temporarily at any auto parts store. To match an original probably will require a call to one of the usual suspects, er, vendors!

Speaking of lug nuts, since I have Panasports on all four corners and a stock steel rim in the trunk for a spare, I carry the four stock lug nuts in a little sack on top of the spare as the lug nuts that came with the mags are different from stock. A little "did you know...."

If I had kept the other lug nuts, I would have sent them to you.

A generic lug nut will work on the wheel. The stock unit with the plastic washer(I believe sold separately) are used so not to damage the wheel center.
