Kevin,

Are you forgetting that the alloy lug nuts are taller than the steel 356 nuts? In addition, there is the spherical portion of the nut that projects below the suface plane of the Fuchs center ... which means that more than an inch of threads are used inside the alloy nuts! Whether it is actually 28 mm ... I haven't measured, but it is AT LEAST AN INCH!!!
