And when you consider that on a P80 the "alignment pin" is basically useless even when there *is* one, this is a great tip.

...

P80 wheel lug bolts are M12 x 1.75, take that info to the hardware store ...

m12 x 1.75, 90 mm, head ground off
$3 for the bolt, 15 minutes with the angle grinder. Now it sits in the toolbox next to the 19 mm deep socket until the fall when I next need to move some wheels around.
