Yes, but they have to be the correct length and diameter to accommodate the fairly thick amount of substance they need to squeeze together.
False. The original liner from the factory fell out at the track. It got trashed by rubbing against my tire. I replaced it with a completely new liner and all new fasteners, and those fell out in 100 miles (and I ruined the new liner I just paid $50-60 for). The design is faulty. I think I'm going to go with well nuts.I quickly realized that the oem fasteners can not be used a second time. Always replace with new fasteners, and you will not have a problem.
