mobile home axle lugs

when i was taking my wheels off a snapped a lug. can i just use grade 8 bolts to replace the lugs or are there certain ones that have to be used? i have new wedges already but the bolts they came with didnt fit so i reused the original

I think a grade 8 bolt with the appropriate shoulder would work fine. The real MH lugs are readily available though and cheap so I would just use them.

This assumes your lugs are of the straight variety. If they have tapered heads, I would say ya gotta use them.

The ones I've used all had a larger head than a comparable grade 8 bolt, just keep that in mind.

Grade 8 with washer if needed, but probably better to get the right bolt. A tire shop that does heavy duty/ag stuff can likely help.

If yours are breaking, I'd replace the lot rather than reuse them.
