Wonder if there are some out there that we could turn down to fit...think this is about the only way we could find some wheel nuts to fit these wheels...any suggestions???
Starting to think these BRM mags are quite rare now...nice to see interest in bringing them back to life.
BTW, since these were Alcan produced.......why did they have a BRM center...the decal does look a lot like the old BRM decals!!!

By default, all wheel nuts are made from hexagonal bar and therefore turning them up is an absolute doddle........., you can do one in minutes - x16 = an hour or so + bar stock, and it's usually a stock off-the-shelf size too. With a wheel to examine, formulating the shape and angles is simple too. And while you're there, make 10 sets because if YOU want a set, as sure as god made little green apples, there'll be plenty of others need a set too.

It looks to me that it would be either the Dunlop D1 or Revolution type of wheel nut the is required depending of the diameter of the holes.

Can anyone recommend an engineering company to get some wheel nuts made?

I’ve made enquiries with a specialist wheel nut supplier and there don’t appear to be any off the shelf items to suit BRMs.

Why not ask Ian Jarman? If you remember at one of our afternoon teas he showed us a load made up for one of his sets of wheels.
