    Hubs with a reverse thread have to be mounted on passenger's side (standard LHD) and standard thread on the driver side.

    This is due to the resisting torque.

    this is what I mean, when you go forward it is in the tightening direction

    I thought we were talking about wheel center caps, not thread nuts....oh well

    BUT....

    Would more (potentially) loosening torque be applied to the nut during braking or during acceleration? That is an important question.

    I am sure the answer depends a lot on the car, but in general I would think much greater force would be applied during braking. If you locked a wheel traveling at high speed, that would effect the nut almost like an impact wrench...either tightening or loosening it depending on the thread direction.

    I mention this, because resisting loosening torque during acceleration would require the opposite thread orientation from that which would resist loosening during braking.....

    That's why I'm talking about "resisting torque"

    Lee,

    Actually it makes the most sense for right hand thread (std) being on the Driver Side, and left hand thread (reverse) being on the Pass Side...theory is that the thread tightens opposite the direction of wheel rotation, thus maintaining tightness.

    Do you have a reason to think that ?

    Look at this video at 2'05"

    "...the right side of the car is a reverse thread and the left side is a standard thread..."

    This makes a lot of sense.

    started a topic Centre Locks

    Centre Locks

    Does anyone definitely know if you need right and left handed thread on centre locks and if so, which side goes where?

    Cheers,
