Lug Nut Problems

I have a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland with 20" rims. I was ASSURED that these Gorilla lug nuts would work. They look NOTHING like what is on the car...and when I took one OEM lug off...and tried to put this one on...NO WAY...not going on...and I don't want to force it. I tried the mopar site. What is the FACTORY lug nut style and size for 2014 JGC Overland. Driving me crazy and just wasted another $50!

Thanks.

Here is what I purchased and was ASSURED would fit. NOT!

Amazon.com: Gorilla Automotive 71681NBC Acorn Black Chrome Wheel Locks (1/2" Thread Size): Automotive

and

Amazon.com: Gorilla Automotive 91187BC Acorn Bulge Seat Black Chrome Lug Nuts (1/2" Thread Size): Automotive

Help is Apprecited very much!

Re: Lug Nut Problems

A quick search of this site will show 14 mm X 1.5 is what you need.

Your amazon links indicate the 1/2' do not fit your jeep.

Re: Lug Nut Problems

Yes sir...I knew 14mm x1.5...and that's what these Gorillas are supposed to be...but they don't go on. So would you explain what the difference between 1.5 and 1/2" is? What lugs WILL fit.

Thank you very much.

14 Millimeters = 0.55118110236 Inches

What will fit is what you said you knew, 14mm x 1.5

...and the '1.5' is the thread pitch, measured peak to peak, in millimeters.

14s, huh? I'm new to WK2s and didn't know that.

Re: Lug Nut Problems

The wheel studs are metric and correct size is M14x1.5.
Incorrect information of 1/2"x 20 SAE for WK2 wheel studs has been published on the WK2jeeps.com website.

Re: Lug Nut Problems

Amazon says that these WILL NOT FIT a 2014 JGC, but they are the dimensions you folks recommended....and you think it's easy to NOT be confused?

Amazon.com: Gorilla Automotive 91743 Acorn Bulge Chrome Lug Nut and Lock System (14mm x 1.50 Thread Size): Automotive

McGard 64074 Chrome/Black (M14 x 1.5 Thread Size) Bulge Cone Seat Style Lug Nut, (Set of 4) : Amazon.com : Automotive

The application chart has not been updated to include 2014 JGC but it does say fits 2013 which is the same.

Re: Lug Nut Problems

They are so inexpensive that I'd get them from the dealer. It's then their problem.
