Lug Nut Specs??

For my winter wheels, I need to order some Spline Drive Lug Nuts. Problem is, I dont know the specs of Ranger lug nuts. Im going to try and order some of these:

So any hep would be great


I found 1/2" X 20" on google. We have a 60 degree conical shape right?

I spent $27.62 still have the slip for them. If you plan to get locking ones make sure 1 lug just locks not all 5 of them. This way when you take the wheels off you do not have to use the supplied key every lug nut. I just find it a pain.

Also... You can buy just replacement conical lug nuts at Advanced Auto. And if you like buy a nice lock set. Not sure if NC has wheel theft issues but up is a different story.

techinally yes, locking ones, but its the spline key drive like above. I have to use these because on the wheels, the lug bore holes are small to where you cant use regular lug. also the lugs are totally recessed:

Those are just like mine. Completely recessed, I would take a trip to your local Advanced Auto and pick up a set and try them out. I didn't know my exact spec but the ones I have work great.

I cant use them man, thats technically what I have now. I cant use them because the holes on the winter wheels are small and the lugs are recessed so you cant fit a regular lug wrench in them. So you have to use the spline kind

Im going to get some Gorilla brand ones for $25 shipped, so its all good

As long as you like them that's all that matters. I like em..Heck if you decide you don't like them sell them in the spring and pick up a set of wheels for the wife.

I was just going to recommend the Gorillas but saw you've already found them! I have a black chrome set on the Mazda and love them! I've used them on a couple other vehicles as well with no issues.
