Lug Nuts

Is this normal to have this much open thread on lug nuts. They are all tight.

With Wolf wheels and stock studs, that is what you get. Technically speaking, you are supposed to install longer studs. It will be fine, unless you live somewhere that requires inspections.

Good engineering practice is for 2.5 treads to be showing, it's like the old school of motoring. Points, condensers and carburetors. And grease those bloody nipples.

Is that right? I've got Wolfs on both my 90 and 127 (and used to have them on my 110), and NEVER had that happen on my studs.

That said, there's no way I'd be comfortable with a thread absence like that...get that fixed!

It is perfectly fine strength wise. I've never, ever heard of anyone stripping the studs or nuts or breaking a stud. Everyone runs this way and nobody has ever died.

It will just upset inspectors. The sneaky solution is closed end nuts....

Length does matter. It make work this way, but if it was me I would put in longer studs. Why take the chance? IMHO

My bias (with no engineering background at all) is to prefer to have none of the threads of the nut showing. Anything else just seems wrong.

Thats exactly how mine looks with Wolf wheels on the rear Salisbury. That's fairly common.

Ronnie's 110 looked like this with the heavy duty 130 wolf wheels. We kept telling him to change out the studs and he kept saying he'd read somewhere that it's fine. The nuts in your pic appear to have at least 1 less thread than Ronnie had engaged.

That is odd. My NAS 110 wasn't like that and nor is my 90 with those wheels. I have also seen newer trucks with wolf wheels with plenty of thread.

Is this an older truck issue?

From what I recall there was a discussion regarding HD wolf wheels and regular wolf wheels, the HD ones supposedly being thicker than the other?

ANR4583PM were the ones Ronnie has/had and they came from mpodgorski via RN

I had a D90 come into the dealership a few months ago that had one stripped out after having steel wheels installed. That being said, it was a Ford dealership and they also fucked up the wheel carrier studs. I replaced the damaged stud with a standard one and not the longer style.

You could always install Disco steel spare wheel nuts for the ultimate in Expedition Exchange chic.

Both my ExMoD 90 and Tith 110 came like that straight from Her Majesty's Ministry of Defense via Witham field. Both had Wolfs on them.

Huh? Look at the link. I was not talking about forum threads. I was talking about nut threads.
