    I had to leave before the dinner that day. What did the wheels sell for if you don't mind me asking? Thanks

    Baz, you might email Luk at Tire Rack as he probably sells single nut wheels and the nuts too. On their site is a list of sales people to email.

    I'm thinking that the center lock for that rim is a custom piece. Did you take a pick of the wheels on the GTSR at VOI in the hallway? That may help you source the proper style center lock nut. Was it Nadine who knows the gentlemen in France who purchased all the GTSR carbon fiber body panels and moulds? He may know of the source. You could also contact ORECA as they may have some bits left over, or possibly remember who may have them.

    The centre-locks are a integral one piece $4k race hub & bearing. They are the same as used on the new GTS-R2, I still purchase my OE GTS-R hub service parts from Riley! The centre nut wouldn't be a lot of use, unless you are going to machine a large threaded tube to screw onto and fix to your wall, the GTS-R's are on studs, and they are a different PCD to the street car. And don't forget, left and right sides have different threads!

    Shhh, that GTS-R2 got me too excited, when you saw me wandering around back there I was just looking out back for the bathroom :D

    The wheels they auctioned were new, never been around Le Mans! I think Baz is refering to a race number, not the actual GTS-R individual race car VIN.

    Nadine hit the nail on the head .. It was race car "53" not chassis 53..

    Just after the nut ,Yes i am going to get a tube spun up and mounted to the wall .. Or even a used damaged hub and nut would be good....

    I have one at home.... bought it from the Orece memorabilia section. I visited the Supercarchallenge this saturday to see C11 in action..... looked at the wheel nut of this GTS/R and compared it to others....
    Seems like Mosler/Corvette have the same wheelnut. So it shouldn't be that difficult to get.

    Triggered by this discussion i will look up onto the document that came with mine.... if it is the same car #53 car.

    Found the nut... but I kept the certificate elsewhere.... It's neat in a box but should be where it belongs. Try to find the certificate tonight.
