      The search for Ball Seat Extended Open-Ended Lug Nuts in an M12x1.5 size is near hopeless.

      I did find a company that made them for Acura NSX's however is the Ball Seating different on German to Japanese cars? The lug nuts cost about $125 for the set, however if they are what I need, I'll buy them at this point.

      I know of the adapter washers that allows you to run Cone Seat Nuts/Bolts on Ball Seat Wheels...they seem sketch to me.

      I dont think that it would change from german to japanese. IF its ball seat it should just be ball seat, The only thing is size which you know.

      OP how many lug nuts do you need?

      I am pretty sure I have 8 nuts in that size just sitting at home in a box ... never been used ...a company that I ordered spacers from a long time ago sent me nuts instead of bolts.

      It seemed too practical for two different foreign manufacturers to share the same quality in their wheel mounting ability.

      I need a set of 20. I'm going to replace all of my nuts as a few of them have stripped out over the years of over-tightening and assurance of the wheels not falling off.

      Mine were Acura too IIRC. But they aren't open ended. However they are very "deep" if that makes any sense.
