Here I am get home thinking I can just throw my brute tires and wheels off it on my viking with the new lug nuts I got and the holes in the wheel won't allow the socket to tighten the nut.....do they make a wheel strictly for a viking and center caps are another issue it popped out

Yea we are out of luck. I have 2 Brute Forces so I guess the wheels stay on them.

I had planned on getting a set of ITP's and some tires.

I know some guys have sti wheels mounted but I wonder if it is a normal 4x110 and it works or if it is a special wheel with bigger stud holes for strictly a viking

Ive got itp ss212's on mine. They didnt have no issues fitting. Like 2K said try a thin wall socket to see. Our lugs are much larger than normal quad.

I've seen other people on this forum who have changed wheels so it is possible. You should ask one of them. Not sure if you want tires like this, but here is a link to a thread where someone changed out the stock wheels.

Online shopping is great! I feel like I always forget about it, then after trying to figure out where to go in town to find whatever I'm looking for I just remember that i can look online. You can really find anything on there. Just be sure to check whoever you are buying from to make sure that they are legit.

Checking the sellers rep and reviews is KEY, especially the reviews and rating as you need to make sure they are authentic by real buyers and not fabricated :D

You have pics of your Viking with the 29.5'' mounted?

I put 4 28" STI's on the Viking, and the original nuts had no room. I contacted Rcky Mtn and they sent me the lug nuts and socket for $19. Was well worth it. Good luck!

Yep, you can't use factory nuts on aftermarket wheels,

I had to go to a local machine shop and have a socket turned down in a lathe. it took about 5 minutes and works great!
