Hi Stratford - it depends on which type of replacement discs you are going to fit - as far as I remember the discs also act as a bearing carrier. The renault ones usually come with new bearings fitted. If you buy non OEM they usually come minus bearings and you need to change them over. The only source of new nuts is from renault bu tif you buy a replacement bearig kit they come with new nuts. As far as I remember the nut is 30mm and it is best to use a deep socket.
P.S. The nuts are special self-locking and are use-once only. When assembling use the old nut until your are happy everything is set right and then replace the old nut with the new and tighten to the correct torque - that way avoids having to reue the once-only nut.
