Lugnuts
 
Milous,
I do wish you would correct the lugnut size on Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - 2011-2014 Grand Cherokee Wheels and tires . The page states that the lugnut size is 1/2" X 20 whereas it is actually M14-1.5. They are not interchangeable. Also, the torque is 110 ft-lbs (150 Nm).

I'm talking about a 2012 Australian export WK2 but I can't imagine that US vehicles have imperial lugnuts when the rest of the vehicle is metric.

Scott, any chance you can contact the people on wk2 jeeps.com to correct this misinformation (Lugnuts: 1/2"x 20) shown here: http://www.wk2jeeps.com/wk2_wheels.htm I have emailed them several times to no avail.

Fixed, thank you. Searched email going back several years and only one I have mentioning the error was received tonight.

I thought I sent you a PM about this some time ago. I checked my list but couldn't find it so I guess I must have pressed the wrong button. I also posted a thread on the lugnut issue (with pics) http://www.jeepgarage.org/f109/dont-...xed-63401.html

:confused: There is no direct email address listed at wk2jeeps.com. Only an email link which seems to cause problems with certain email programs. A direct email address posted would be more efficient. I went into properties for the link to find a form of the actual address and then had to deduce from there what the actual address is. Thanks to Milous, the info has been corrected!

Hmm, all the big lug-nut manufacturers and wheel lock sites show all Wk2's as 1/2" X 20. Just double checking as I will be buying new lug nuts.

Make sure the Mopar nuts have M stamped on them. See my thread http://www.jeepgarage.org/f109/dont-...xed-63401.html

Changes noted, thanks! You might also want to add that the Hub Bore Diameter is 71.5mm. This is significant if fitting these wheels to trailer hubs.
