Looking at pictures of that size, they seem too long?
I thing they may stick outside of rim face of the wrangler rim.

Re: WK2 Lug Nut Size

I have a WK2 with 18" wheels. It's an export model, I don't know if that makes a difference. It definitely has M14-1.5 lug nuts. I'm having a lot of trouble getting them because the parts suppliers keep mixing them up with identical looking 9/16"X18 nuts. The correct nuts have an "M" stamped on them as on the nut on the left in the photo. The one on the right is a 9/16X18.

Re: WK2 Lug Nut Size

I'm guessing stock lug nuts have a 60 degree taper? does anyone know this? That size seems to be about standard. However some rims on ebay state buyer should purchase gorilla lug nuts because "most"factory lug nuts will not work them. That makes me a little afraid I should have got aftermarket lug nuts but they guy I bought them from said he thought OEM lugs were fine. But he didn't seem 100% about it like he didn't really know for sure.

I have the gorilla locking lug nuts on mine and the only difference (besides them being keyed) is that the OEM has a flange that sticks out at a wider diameter than the cone just above the cone. The gorilla nuts are missing that flange. On my OEM 18" wheels (greyish silver color), the gorilla nuts look good, but on my aftermarket black rims, the gorilla nuts don't look as good since, without that flange, they don't cover the unsprayed edge of the lug holes in the wheels. Most people aren't going to look that closely, so it didn't matter much to me.

I don't know if this helps any, but I thought I'd toss it out there.

FYI, here's the gorilla locking nuts I purchased:

Re: WK2 Lug Nut Size

here are the Gorilla ones that have the bulge flange that match up with the stuck lug flanges. I don't have the whole set but just one on each wheel and they blend with the stock lugs a lot better than the Mcgard ones which I had but were just plain ugly and I took them off.

Re: WK2 Lug Nut Size

Go with either Gorilla part # 71643NBC
( I've had these on for a year now )
all 20 are locks..
or the fatter style ( looks more like OEM )
Gorilla part # 66148BDX
you'll have to get a set of locks if you prefer to have them )

The measurement is 14mm x 1.5 ....



I scooped mine from amazon 2 day delivery
