    guys, sorry for this one. I'm heading to Pepgirls to get some new lug nuts, and wanted to know what thread pitch I should be looking for. I'd bring a sample along, but the truck is 1hr away at a friends place... and I'm not sure if I have any spares in the garage. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    Anyone?

    aren't 3/4 and 1 ton lugs just 9/16" course thread? I know I was using some standard course thread nuts off of ubolts on my 14bff for awhile. I don't know about pitch.

    oops. ment fine thread

    They should be 9/16 fine, or if it is dodge parts and 1990 or newer 1/2-20 (fine)

    I know they are a 9/16" thread, but do not know the pitch. I also know that pepboy's will not have them, you should hit a local part's store or napa, if they do not have them, they can get them from a local warehouse, just tell tem they are for a K30 and you should be set.

    Just go to your local tire/wheel shop. They should know (after looking in the computer) and you can buy as many or as few as you want. Most automotive studs are fine thread.

    If they are the same as a 3/4 ton, then they are 9/16"-18 thread.

    Thanks Westy! Suppose the 60* thing is still accurate when mounting hummers? /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    My 78' Ford 60 has 1/2" studs up front. I will be changing them to 9/16" soon.

    My old 80' SRW hubs had 1/2 fine lugs too before I swapped to these DRW hubs from the late 70's. Now they match the studs that are in my DRW D70, which is supposedly 9/16 fine thread.

    AFAIK, there is no other degree of conical seats except for the mag wheels which take that straight type with washers. And Hummer wheels take the same 60 degree seats, too. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    You are correct. AFAIK, there are only two types of lug nuts, 60* and mag type.

    9/16-18, I'll 3rd or 4th that one.

    Some of the dually nuts I've seen were shaped like a flanged nut. Can't explain it, but just looks like the nut with the washer, you know? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I use 9/16 X 18NF Autozone PN 98920 $1.19 each (stock open style)......believe it or not it took 3 tries for my local Autozone to come up with the right ones, so hopefully a PN will be faster for you /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    There is a 3rd style of lug it is a ball seat honda lug. Those weird little falnged lugs are a torque retention design for hub-centric wheels (a lot of dually's and new fords)

    Well in that case, I forgot, some Mercades and Audi use BOLTS instead of nuts to retain their wheels. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Dan, you should send Bill (45acp) or Sean (45acp,jr) a PM and ask about their stainless steel lug nuts. Granted you get what you pay for, but they will never rust! /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Also jusy a note some 1 ton axles may use left handed threads. Our 1 ton F350 uses right twist on one side and left twist on the other /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
