What size do you need?, I have some that fit about a 30mm hole plus I might still have some that fit about a 10mm hole, did have some big ones but not sure if I can find them, they are ex factory early Mazda ones.

Edit, I read you wanted bungs, also have grommet, they are about 20mm od

Another person closer to home has said they'll check their stash. I'll report back once I hear back.

Thanks OS!

A box of grommets was just delivered.  Not sure who you are?

Not latex rubber/silicone for a change. (Which is the norm for mystery packages from OS users)

Bart, the pain of you skulking about to get some grommets, when an entire box can be delivered to you overnight, is unbearable 

Thanks buddy.

I need to buy some long shank nuts to suit the hotwires I just bought for my Marina. I haven't used or bought shank nuts before, so I presume I just need the outer diameter to be a close fit in the hole and as long as I can fit without bottoming out on the hub? Are there any precautions I should take since the wheels will be nut centric not hub centric?

Last time I bought some , the most economical way was to get them from super cheap

But yes, snug fit in the holes, and not longer in the shank than the wheel is thickness wise 

And steel washers. 

 

Also if you are getting close to bottoming out the nut, make sure the wheel stud doesn't taper out at the bottom. I've seen that happen and the nut got stretched bigger at the shank end, making it very difficult to get back out of the wheel...

Ive got sets off mag n turbo before

I must have dealt with a bunch or useless places. The company who supplies our wheel nuts/spacers didn't have any
