If you don’t actually need factory, you can buy these new aftermarket pretty cheap like on fleabay.

I saw them on Ebay and Dorman. Just thought I could/would do biz with one of the members clean out their stash and help the little guy before helping the big guys out first.
Thanks jtinluvr

factory are probably better as the chrome on the aftermarket are shit. not that it really pertains here, but the Toyota mags of the same era take the same type short shoulder nuts with a 1.5 pitch, so you could put Yota' wheels on your Datsun or vise versa with the right nuts. I had the snowflake turbo wheels on a Dodge Colt wagon and used the Yota lugs.

If I remember correctly the correct shank size is not the .73 mag width, But .71 (18MM).

These would do the trick. I had ebay ones on my ZX 6 spokes.

Thanks for the link Jacob

maybe I shouldn't be so concerned with the shank design. The pic's are just for reference.

my question is where the tip of the shank is angled. Does it touch deep inside the recessed hole ? Should I purchase a set that has more squared surface or the angled shank will be ok ?

looks like 85 ft-lbs was recommended for lots of Nissan wheels 1971 - 2018.

Pretty sure I was running the angled ones on my ZX 6 spokes. Seemed fine. Course my wheels where butchered by the previous owner running acorn nuts (smashed material into the holes).
