Default Hurst Wheel Lug Nuts

Just got a set of used Hurst rims for my '69 Judge. As I begin the restoration process, the one thing I dont see addressed on anyone else's posts are what type of lug nuts to use?

The rims are the thin shank webbed style, and I need some advice about what lug nut to utilize. I haven't been able to find anyone selling original lug nuts and the repo lug nuts I see available all say "will NOT work on original rims".

So can anyone on here that has (or had) a set of thin shank wheels tell me what lug nuts they used, please?

TIA !!

Ames sells repop hurst lug nuts (but I believe they are for only for thick shank wheels) @ $400/set (20). I bought a set recently and they seem to match the few (rough) samples that came with my wheels perfectly.

T105L HURST WHEEL LUG NUT SET, ORIGINAL STYLE (RE)

I don't know what the differences are between lug nuts when it comes to thick/thin shank - if it's just a length issue, perhaps these repops could be machined down to work?

Long shank original Hurst lug nuts pictured below.

One would think that by simply shortening the part that protrudes through the wheel center to match up with the thickness of a thin shank wheel theyd work for you. I cant imagine why the tapered seat on the thin and thick shank wheels would be any different.

I ended up buying 20 NOS thick shank lug nuts about 9 years ago from a fellow PY member for $400, the price of admission isnt cheap when it comes to original Hurst wheels.

I recently saw a video on You tube that recommended this site for hard to find lug nuts for obscure wheels.

https://lugnutguys.com/

Hopefully this may help you out..........

Default Good choice

IMO the best looking Wheel ever produced and look great on Pontiacs. Since your wheels are thin shank these will work and look good as well. I researched this years ago and found that this type of lug nut would work on the thin shank wheels.

Donziboy - the McGard website (shop.mcgard.com) doesn't have a listing for lug nuts with either part # 073396 or 073324. Do you have any other part number I could try??

Use a non-Hurst lug nut ?

No thanks, not me.

Maybe there was a good reason Hurst put this warning sticker on their wheels other than the desire to sell your their special lug nuts.

Id try Tom Rubinate or someone else who has a stash of Hurst wheel components and buy either a set of thin shank lug nuts or at least a sample to use for comparison against the long shank lug nuts so you can modify a set of those.
