This post is for those thick skulls out there who insist that commy wheels fit HQ.
I have a HG ute that has HQ brakes and the previous owner had run commy wheels for a short time but all good (he reckoned) as i got it with the Q rims back on, yeah ?

I bdcided to investigate my rim size/bacxkspace options for the Munro and thought i'd use the ute for sussing this info but when i tried getting a mag wheel on, it was instantly obvious that the commy wheels have fu%$ed the studs and first you'd know is when a stud or more breaks off at the worst moment.
Had a commy rim on this just while a puncture was repaired then once i got the right rim back on, "[http://gallery.oldho...|she crapped out within minutes]"

Note the studs seem to be fine, the nuts do up without a hint of trouble but in the attatched pic, you can see clearly the studs have all flared outwards and is impossible to get a mag nut in them 'oles.
Bugger ay !

Great photo's Dusty, but I still think that there are too many experts out there that will still say that they fit! God help us if (or when) the first unfortunate death is attributed to this.

Well i would never insist or disagree with anybody that was giving me advise, or telling me something, or call people names that are asking a question. I would either say thanks for ya help and make my own decision, or if its a stupid question, don't bother commenting. I once posted a question on here about a brake upgrade for a HR holden, and all i really got people saying i am a dick for wanting a upgrade and so on. As for the HQ pattern, and pre HQ pattern, i was always lead to believe that that was the case, thanks for the insight, WOW (seriously) As it goes for your comment on those with thick skulls, well i thought that HQ onwards were all the same, like i said that's what i was always told, not i have ever needed or tried, or asked the question, that's news to me, once again thanks. But you also must be thick or/and angry. There is no need for the name calling, people come here to find out answers, that's the point of this site i though!! And a tip for you, you thick sculled moron, learn how to spell!!!!!!!!

Incorrect spelling, incorrect syntax, poor punctuation, and failing to capitalise proper nouns. You are certainly the person I would come to for advice on composing my next cowardly and smartarse reply to someone's well intentioned and informative post. NOT!!

Hi Dusty,

Fabulous effort from you, both photos and info.
I'll create a special effort and maybe ask Rusty to add a homepage link so te info gets propagated.

It'll take a day or so due to my current commitments.

Holdenpaedia, they're the brakes Mate.

Bit of a worry seeing this ...
we are quick to tell peeps to lose the commy rims but i think the studs would need to be renewed...just because.
