Well well.. I dont believe what a boo boo Lexus have made supplying a Sport with a wheel brace that does not fit the sport wheels!!!

I needed to use the wheel brace and the holes were too small.

Do any other Mark 1 sport owners have the same problem?

Hi Steve

Had same problem with mine.

When I got my wheels had to buy a full set of wheel nuts, paid six quid a peice for the nuts. Nuts fitted OK and could just about get my Halfords wheel brace (bar type with sockets ) to fit.

Nuts loosened in no time so had to buy a thin walled socket from Halfords with breaker bar to suit which solved problem.

I do believe however that correct size nuts are available but my local dealer could not get hold of them.
