Ithink they only come in for pack but you need the silver reverse ones if your replacing all of them.

up its normal... that got me too when I first tried to take off the wheels.

as for them trying to sell you the wrong nuts just bring it in to them and ask them to put on the nut by turning it the "right" way.

The regular thread ones are the ones I keep losing.The darn things won't stay tight no matter what I do the reverse ones have never came lose.I'm about to try the red threadlock just to keep them on but then I probably won't be able to get them off...lol

They are reversed on one side so they wont fall off with the torque of the wheel. As you accelerate or land from a jump, the wheel WILL shift a little bit no matter how hard you tighten the nut down. With the revesed thread, it makes it much more difficult. If you would take the time to notice, tightening is in the forward direction of the wheel on BOTH sides. this is only possible by having one side "reverse thread" ....Makes sense now doesnt it? A little reasearch before taking your truck apart would have prevented an ignorant post on your part. Stupid is as stupid does.
