LUG NUTS FAQS
How to Remove a Stripped Lug Nut?
One of the most frustrating problems while doing vehicle repairs is removing stripped lug nuts. Stripped Lug Nuts typically occur when the Nut is installed using a worn or incorrect socket and removing them can almost seem impossible.
One of the least expensive ways to remove a stripped lug nut is to use a hammer and tap the socket on until fully seated and using a breaker bar to remove the nut. If the Lug Nut is severely stripped, Lug Nut removal sockets are available. Lug Nut Removal sockets are tapped onto the stripped lug nut and due to the internal construction of the socket, it actually tightens onto the socket when removing.
How Much Torque Do You Need For Lug Nuts?
Torquing your car's lug nuts to the proper specification is crucial for your vehicle’s safety and overall functionality. To know how much torque is needed for lug nuts, you can refer to your manual for specifications. If this is not provided, best to consult a dealer that sells your car's brand instead of guessing.
How To Measure Wheel Bolt Pattern?
A standard bolt pattern starts with the number of studs you’re mounting your wheels on to. It can be 4- 5- 6- or 8-lug. Once you have determined the lug count, you will need to measure the circle’s diameter formed by the center of the wheel lugs.
In 4- 6- and 8-lug, the bolt patterns are measured from one lug center to the one directly across it. A 5-lug bolt pattern is a little more challenging to measure. For 5-lug bolt patterns, select one stud as you starting point and over 2 lugs counter clockwise then measure across from the middle point of one hole to the back end of the hole across it.
If you have any questions about the process, or you’d like some expert advice, we’re always here to help.
