Lug Nuts


Recommended Posts

In another thread I posted that I discovered three or four cracked lug nuts on the Sendel aluminum wheels I have on my '17 Oliver.  The new set of bulge acorn lug nuts came today and I just want to make sure that they look ok/correct.  They seat farther down into the hole than the originals and the threads are not as deep.(about a quarter inch difference)   I have zero trouble sending them back, safety first!

If you look close you can see the crack in the overlay.  

The plan is to change them all out, torque to 90# and then again after 50 miles or so. 

Thanks for any input!

You should be good as long as the thread grip length doesn't bottom out, i.e. too short a nut depth engaging the lug. My LE's lugs don't extend very far out of the wheel (can't recall the exact measurement). Make sure the nuts are long enough to get a good grip with the socket you use for torquing too! One of the stock nut's covers stripped out on me during the maiden flight from the"Oliver Birthing Facility." Just the doing a routine torque check. See attached photo with my replacement.

I had some split/cracked 2 piece clad lug nuts as well.   I just replaced all of my lug nuts with solid one piece Gorilla lug nuts from Summit Racing.  I don’t think the new ones actually seat any deeper into the rim.  The conical seating area of the lug nut and rim are the standard 60 degree taper.   It just looks like it seats deeper because the new lug nuts don’t have the stainless steel clad cover that protrudes right at the rim.   And the female thread depth on the new lug nut is more than enough to fully engage all of the male threads on the lug.

Thanks guys!  I'm 5 hours into my trip and lug nuts are staying tight at 90#  Checked at 50 miles and 100.
