I believe the smaller the ET, the deeper the dish on the wheel... ET 10 being the deepest and ET 34 being the shallowest...

Does anyone have a link to the type of aftermarket lugs that can be used with these? I am currently using stock 12mm but want to use a stud/lug combo.
Thanks for any help!

^^ should be able to use a ball seat lugnut and whatever size studs (12mm?) fit your drums.

side question: where can you buy these anymore? looks like cip1 dried up. i have a set that im wanting to sell, but im trying to price them right as i dont want them to just sit in the garage. i have the original boxes to ship them in also.

I bought longer Mercedes style lug bolts here, but they have quite the variety! Cool
