The 3/8" nuts that come with the Minitor rims work very well with Vega rims. 
They use a 13/16" lug wrench and have plenty of meat to keep from pulling 
throufh, although you DO have to make sure that they are properly centered 
before you torque them down. I believe the Monza/Astre/Sunbird cars also 
used 4-on-4. Anyone have an old Monza rear axle laying around?
