TCI rotors

I just got the front end installed on my truck last week and when I went to put some wheels on I coulnd't get a lug nut to fit. After going to the local auto parts store and getting a variety of nuts I discovered that the lugs are metric. I'm probably just ignorant but is this the case on all new TCI rotors? Thanks.

If you have GM pattern rotors.......GM went to metric studs about 20 years ago.....so all the 20 year old UP GM rotors will have metric threads.

I bought a TCI Stage III chassis for a 40 Ford ( with Ford pattern rotors ) recently and it had 1/2 20 SAE threads on the rotors.....

Thanks Deuce....like I said...I'm ignorant. Everything I work on is mid 70's and older. This is just something I will have to stick in the ol' memory bank. Thanks again.

You can press the metric stuff out..and press the good ole SAE stuff in....and I would IF the rear end is the same pattern and SAE threads.

The metric lug nuts also have a different angle on the shoulder of the nut.....so they do not shoulder up real good on the older wheels.

tci rotors

I ran in to the same problem. Fronts are metric, rears are US. I can't for the life of me imagine why TCI doesn't put the same size on the front and rear. I had a 50/50 in selecting chevy or ford pattern- not only the above problem, but when you request chevy pattern you get smaller rotors too! I paid them nearly $8k for my chassis, don't feel like I got my $ worth. Have other problems they could fix, if they wanted to, as well. Next frame for me will not be TCI. Bill
