is a metric bolt.

At this point Burt is pretty much my only option. Fastenal *might* be able to get them in. Burt probably has the right size in grade 8.8, which will probably do.

I'm looking for a JIS M12 x 50 for my front tow hooks. I know that the OEM one is probably a grade 8.8 (head has a 5 stamped on it), but I'd like to get grade 10.9 since it's for tow hooks. The problem is DIN standard has a 19mm head, JIS has 17mm head, and DIN std is 1.75 mm/thread whereas JIS is 1.25 mm/thread (which is considered super fine).

Fastenal no (maybe, min. order 25 maybe)
AAA Metric no
McMaster no

I have found JIS 8.8+ bolts at Ace Hardware before. Go to a good one though that still sells "hardware"

Any suggestions? The one close to me (Kipling and Bowles) is pretty good, but no JIS from what I could see...maybe I'll try A&A Tradin' Post since I'll prolly be down on Broadway anyway today...

A&A has another store at Coal Mine & Pierce too.

AAA didn't have it??!?!:eek:

Yeah, that really surprises me. If anyone had or could get it, AAA Metric would have been my guess.

AAA didn't have it in stock, I'm sure they could get it. Fastenal can get it. Colorado Fasteners cut me off pretty fast once I said JIS...:(
