I am swapping a D44HP from an F250 and will be running some blingy ass H2 wheels. What lug nuts should I use. The standard 1/2-20 nuts that were used on the steel wheels are too small and the H2's use some metric 14 mm. Anyone have a brand/part number for a reasonably priced piece?

I use a standard 1/2 right hand thread lug nut form the tire stores and no problems. Actually the fronts are all off my old jeep :flipoff2:

What part of "The standard 1/2-20 nuts that were used on the steel wheels are too small" did you miss? LOL :flipoff2:

go to the local parts house and take a look at the aftermarket 1/2" lug nuts they have. you need ones with large flanges.

Too small as in the OD of the conical section of the standard lug nut almost falls through the hole in the wheels. I am going to NAPA tomorrow and will see what they have. I talked to them on the phone and I have prices ranging between $1.25 ea to $4.00 each! :eek: I don't want to be spending another $100 plus on just some fawkin lug nuts!

I think you'll find they are actually 9/16" threads.

JJS...you are right. I went to NAPA and they have some bulged acorn style which have a larger flange. I am still looking for a cheaper alternantive although I don't mind spending a buck or so a lug, just not $4 each! I'll have to see how much the McGard brand are. I used these on my van when I bought the AR wheels and they have no signs of rust or even scratches!

Thanks for the replies so far.

yeah, I meant they fit a 1 1/8" socket, indicating they are a rather large overall sized nut, that should not have any problems slipping through the holes on a H2 rim..

I buy my lug nuts from www.patchboy.com. Great prices on just about any size or type of lug nut you might want. I like the open-end, bulge lug nuts with a 13/16" hex size. Those should have enough surface area in the cone. I'm assuming that you've already confirmed that your wheel studs are the normal 1/2-20 thread since your old nuts will thread on. I'm not familiar with the Hummer wheels but you might want to confirm that they use the conical seat style lug nut.

are you sure you need an acorn style nut :confused:

I spent more on my lugnuts than I did on my rims. Shouldered. Got the rims for 50 and spent 90 on lugnuts. Dont want a tire falling off.
