I wish I were still using my RB IX hats. I can get rings that come with hardware for a very decent price.

You can get grade 10.9 hardware just about anywhere.

I do believe that. But, I think these nuts have some kind of locking built in. Looks like the same type of crashed on one side like exhaust manifold nuts. I might be wrong here, but that is how it looks like to me!

Yeah, can also find nuts like that anywhere that sells quality hardware. Obviously won't find stuff like that a place like Ace Hardware.

I wouldn't use that as an example. Grade 5 SAE hardware is nowhere near the strength I would consider for holding my brakes together.

You are absolutely right,.. I am not too familiar with your bolt grading. I use 10.9 or 12.9 and above on the car.

I just ahd a look at the Brembo hardware I got and they too use self locking nuts.. small 12 point ones..

SAE Grade 5 is close to Metric 8.8, "medium strength"
SAE Grade 8 is close to metric 10.9, "high strength"

Metric 12.9 exceeds SAE Grade 8. Probably close to F911 it aircraft hardware.
