    Lug nut thread pitch = 12 x 1.25?

    I'm looking into getting some lug nuts for my upgraded set of wheels and was researching the correct thread pitch for the K13. From what I can tell, it's 12 x 1.25 yes? Can anyone kindly confirm?

    yes it is, but you shoudn't need them. lug nut isnt expensive but the fact you need to buy 16 is!!!. Dont buy aluminum nuts (a tire guy told me not to, so never have)
    2015 Micra S (manual)
    no A/C /no power options
    Feb 2015 build
    9,999 purchase price + tax..no additional 1600$ because it was a 2015 purchased in 2016
    hmmm...purchase price 2018 is now 10,488...spark cheaper now

    Aluminum expands at different rates then steel and other alloys so they can become loose an if re tightened they can
    Be over tight when cooled and the threading on the soft aluminum can be stripped

    If you look at nismo race lugs there a graph explaining this

    Had the same question a minute ago, found this. https://wheelsvision.com/en/catalog/...a/IV_K13/type/
    12 x 1.50 a bit late but useful information! (:

    Canadian Micras are 1.25, if anyone needs a set of gorilla security locks in 1.50 let me know :P I bought them assuming we had the same as everyone else.

    I use these, for about 3 summers now. Torque to spec and start them by hand you won't have problems with aluminium lug nuts and I drive really hard. Spec: M12 x 1.25P
