Does anyone out there in 924 land know where i can get a reasonably cheap tap and die set, one that actually includes the M14 x 1.5 needed for wheel bolts and holes? I don't need a flash expensive set as they'll only really be used to clean the muck out of bolt holes and off bolt threads.

Tap and die sets are awesome but are really for making new threads, a generally cheaper option is a thread chase which you might be able to make yourself if you get some corresponding hardware.

Thank you, the homemade thread chaser is a great idea, and new to me
