    Does anyone have a source for stainless lug nuts to fit the 9/16" studs on a 3/4 ton?

    Seems like stainless is too soft to make a good lug nut.

    I see that a lot of places make the smaller sizes, but I don't see them for our trucks. I figure with 8 of them on each wheel they should hold up. I'm guessing that they're harder than the aluminum wheels. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Probably because they require so much torque /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I made a set for my truck and I also made a set for a buddy's EB last year. 303ss 1" hex. Back then before steel prices went up I thought it was quit expencive. Lucky for me I had bar ends left over from a customers run so that brought the price down (free) hehehe

    I was thinking that azzkicking might make some.....but I'm not sure about that.
