Does anyone know the specs of the D90 steel wheel lug nuts? ie: outside,inside, threads, strength, etc.
Thanks.

They are the same size as the stock alloy lug nuts, as far as outside dia. and thread goes. I know that the size same tire wrench can be used for both types. I don't know what size exactly. I don't know the thread size.
I do know this, though. Make sure you order enough for your spare if you plan on changing out all the rims.
So, you really need 23. When I took my spare off, I found that they had placed an extra steel wheel lug nut on the top mounting post screw of the spare tire carrier. I don't know if this was there by accident or if they do it to all of them, but it was hidden behind the spare. I didn't know it was a steel wheel lug nut until I bought a set and recognized it.

More like 27MM. Gulfcoastrover has tefloned sets reasonably cheap.

thanks for the info on the lug nuts. I was wondering about fabricating or plating lug nuts in CAD, or other coating.
ARP makes killer hardware for racing appliactions. Anyone else thought of this?

They stopped carrying the cad plated ones years ago, unfortunately. IIRC they weren't happy with their plater and couldnt find another. Too bad, too, they're damn nice.

What is ti-ni? Do you mean TiN? If you do, I can have that done probably for free if you want. I can get AlTiN, TiN, TiAlN. I just fail to see the point, TiN adds to lubricity and the other coatings help dissapate heat and add to hardness. Both important if your cutting 304 stainless, but not all that imortant if your torqueing down on a nut.

I'm familiar with Titanium coatings as now they are used for some tactical knives. Mostly for abrasion and rust resistance.
Looks better than zinc, which wears out quicky. My motive would be rust resistance primarily. Hardened Chromoly with such a coating would make a fine lug nut IMO. I know that CAD is used in stud applications. Was wondering why not lug nuts?.

Okay,

That would work. But, I think you might be a little crazy about your nuts (no pun intended). The only 4340 nut I have ever seen has been a special application for aerospace. Plus, I don't think it will do much good to have a chromo nut on the Rover low carbon steel bolt. Way overkill.

I can put you in touch with a coating facility that will cut you a deal if you like. I don't know how happy you will be with either purple (TiCN, AlTiN, or TiAlN) or Gold (TiN, Zerconium). But hey, whatever floats your bolt!

That would be great. I'd probly go for ti-gold or CAD plating.

[That would work. But, I think you might be a little crazy about your nuts (no pun intended).]
I cannot deny the above
