Gentleman’s this Lug nuts will work?

The lug nuts are an M12-1.5 SO I would have to say NO they will NOT WORK. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news! [sad] They will be close in size but not exact so go with the correct or you might regret it in the end!

those will work once, just might need some extra torque. but when you take them off they will take the studs with them lol.


seriously though, those will NOT work. like Typhoon said, you need M12x1.5

I found these at Next Level Motoring
https://www.nlmotoring.com/Bulge-Acorn-Hex-Lug-Nut-Chrome-12x1-5-p/cph1215ch-20.htm
I was concerned that a lot of the offerings have less cone area when compared to the stock lug nut. These match closely AND they are rated for 130 ft. lbs.
They are a little taller than stock (1.4 vs. 1.25). Note that these are for the stock wheel...aftermarket wheels may need a smaller OD (these are 0.9 diameter). Here's a pic comparing the NLM nut on the left, the stock nut in the middle, and a Dorman spline drive on the right.

In the case of a shop over-torquing, I'd want my lug to strip out before the stud. Unfortunately we have no way of knowing what the studs are rated to, but I hope it's well beyond 143 ft-lbs. (probably is, but how to be sure?)

True enough, but some lug nuts on this thread are rated for 85 ft. lbs., below the 100 ft. lbs. Ford spec.

I know this is an ancient post, but I am currently using their black chrome version of these, the 64015s, on the factory wheels.

GREAT so far, as I do NOT like lugs which stick out too far (asking for trouble, BESIDES the additional, unnecessary added weight, even in the center of the wheel).
IF they made these in an even shorter yet, lighter, open ended version, I would get them for my Pro Race 1.2s. [wink]
Went to swap out back to the Summer tires this past evening. While I had removed the rear nuts with no problems; to do pads a couple of weeks after getting it back from the dealer, the front hadn't been touched. Well, had some trouble getting the front driver side nuts to free themselves from the socket. (lotsa wiggling)

Based on their hiring queue...

...they're made in USA.

Can't seem to find torque specifications.

Reviews seem to be solid. Buying them now.

Thanks for the recommendation [MENTION=4438]M-Sport fan[/MENTION]. [8D]

This is what I bought:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DIX1PNC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Same lug nuts as you posted, only it's part of a complete kit that includes lock nuts. It's for 5 lug wheels, which means you will have 4 spares. A good thing to have, and for cheaper than buying everything separately...

As of now, it's $75, but last Tuesday I got it for $68. Man oh man, Amzon prices fluctuate like crazy!

Edit: There are no specific torque specs for the Mcgard lugs (unlike those crap Muteki lugs, sorry Typhoon). They specify to use the car owner's manual torque specs.

[MENTION=10503]babyivan[/MENTION] - I had considered the lock nuts, but was afraid that in the end, the only person I'd keep from removing them was myself. But yeah, if you can get an extra four for the same price, why not eh? Probably just goes to show how over priced they are. But they're quality and made here so, worth the extra.

What's another 15 ft lbs of EL Torque?
17.6% over specification. [:0] Other fish in the sea man, other fish...

The Mutekis are not necessarily "crap", and they are one of the best/highest quality of all of the import brands, and one of the very few who make a hex type 17mm version for those who need that to fit in the smaller lug sockets/recesses in some aftermarket wheels.

But YES, I DO wish that McGard made some black chrome, 17MM HEX style lug nuts for us. ;)
