Question on these capped lugs. I have a full set that came with the Freestyle alloy wheels. What is the actual lug size of these? Mine seem to actually be different sizes (not all the same). Someone mentioned that the lug underneath may rust and make that occur. Wondering if either of you know the answer to this on size.

I'd give them to you but recently decided to run two types of wheels. My Michelin XZL 7.5x16 for snow, mud and general off road on Wolf steel wheels and then Freestyle alloy on BF Goodrich for general driving and a fair amount of beach/sand driving I do in the summer. The Michelin's do not float well no matter how much air you let out.

Honestly Matt (and you probably dont want to hear this) consider getting RRC solid lugs. In my opinion LR should have done this for all NAS. I personally never liked the capped lugs and have had a very poor experience with them since 2001 and switched over a few years back. You'll save yourself a lot of headache in the long run. Just imagine being in a jam with a flat and not able to get the lugs off because they have swelled. We have enough to deal with and it is nice to take that potential issue off the list.

I have the RRC solid lugs currently on the deep dish wheels. I didn't think they would work on the freestyles? Or look right. I've had no issue with the capped ones on the D90.
Still looking for 20 in good or better shape.

Thanks for the info Jeff, that's good to know. Doesn't look bad! Sandblast and paint them and should look good.

I was just giving you my 2 cents from my experience with the capped lugs. I didn't see the need to sanblast and paint - but thats up to you. But mine are stock out of the box and look just like Jeff's pic, which I think looks good, and they haven't rusted (and will never swell...)

I imagine there is a little man in your head combing through indexed land rover files and he wears a Wolf lug nut Vneck half shirt...

the solid ones work for me. could care less what they look like. they don't crush up.

in fact, i just procured 3 more for the spare, so you're welcome to the three i have on the spare. just pay the freight.

i might even have a whole set of capped ones in a box somewhere if you want them.

Go solid. I was stranded with the capped ones. Never again.

Thanks for the offers Joel. I'll keep these options in mind when I get to the wheels.

Anyone have 20 solid lugs they could spare? Not worried about condition as long as they are not rounded off...

------ Follow up post added March 9th, 2015 05:31 PM ------

Also, is there no aftermarket solid lugs? Non LR, but fit just the same?
