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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Thank you all for the great knowledge. Can someone point me to a link that shows the EXACT lug nuts (black) that I need to purchase for my 2014 JGC Overland, before I waste any more money? What is the SIZE, TITLE, SHAPE of the factory lug nut for a noob like me? Thank you in advance!!!

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.

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

THank you all!

Amazon is backordered for weeks on that link.

WILL THESE WORK? :)
