Re: Lug Nut Problems

People often get confused about diff between mm and SAE threads. I have a set of thread gauges and dial calipers to verfy what i am looking at. With MM there are different thread pitches standard with each MM size. For 14mm there are 3 thread pitches but the most standard used are 1.25 and 1.5. Measure your wheel lugs.

X2, even WK2jeeps.com is confused! They incorrectly list the lug size as 1/2"x20 when it should be M14x1.5.

Messed me up too! Now I have a set of 1/2"x20 SAE lug nuts of no use to me! lol
I looked for contact information for WK2jeeps.com and could not find any way to contact them so I'm sure the bad info is still there.

For the original poster, try a local Discount Tire/Americas Tire.

Dunno about the ones in your area, but the local ones here have pretty good selections of lug nuts, and the good part is they can test ONE before wasting your money.

Those look great....I painted my center cap color matched to the car yesterday, so the lugs and center cap being black on a black 2014 Overland....will look sweet. Here is a crappy garage pic. I put on 4 coats of paint, and 3 coats of clear...it does sparkle in the sun.



I will post another pic Thursday when I have changed all the lugs out! THEN it will be awesome.

Re: Lug Nut Problems

I received the McGard Locking Lug nuts today and put them on the car. I think it looks great with the painted center cap.



Still wish I could find someone to paint the grey pockets color matched to the black of my JGC.

Re: Lug Nut Problems

I use the Gorilla 71643NBC on my SRT. Just make sure the lugs or locks are 14mmx1.5 bulge acorn 60 degree taper. I got this part number directly from Gorilla for the System locking lugs
