    I put 13's om mine and didn't change anything I check the lugs every 1,500 miles they are not coming loose; I wouldn't worry about changing anything! Just tighten them up after putting them on and don't worry about it, its just a gokart!

    I realize this question was asked six months ago; but if anyone comes along who is interested in this relatively common issue, I'd like to add that after putting 13" wheels on my '90 Metro, I was warned by a tire shop that the taper on my lug nuts was just barely large enough to keep the wheel from falling off. Not long afterward, I read a post by a Canadian member; in which he mentioned that Gorilla makes an oversized lug nut specifically for this conversion, which threads onto the stock wheel studs; and that Summit Racing carries them. So I ordered a set, and promptly found that my front end felt a lot more stable. Apparently, the wheels were actually flexing with the stock nuts' smaller taper. So I heartily recommend those Gorilla lug nuts.

    I want to tow my '99 Geo Metro stick shift behind my motor home. Any problems doing this?

    I believe this can be done with no problem. However, if your Metro has power steering; it would be best to double check with a Chevy dealer.

    But if you instead towed the motor home with the Metro; wouldn't you save a whole lot of fuel? However, most motor homes have automatic transmissions; which would mean they can't be flat towed.
