Lug nuts, otherwise known as lug bolts, have an important job on your vehicle. They hold the wheel to the tire. Despite having no universal lug nut size, lug nuts tend to be similar in thread count. There are about 10 thread pitches and sizes that make up lug nuts.

Understanding the difference between lug nut sizes and types is extremely important because you will need that knowledge to replace once if and when lost/damaged.

## Lug Nut Size: Are All Lug Nuts The Same Size?

This may be the biggest misconception of them all – that lug nuts all have the same shape. Lug nuts can be categorized based on their sizes and thread pitches. The wrong size or thread pitch lug nut can damage a wheel.

You can know the thread size (thread diameter) of the lug nuts of your vehicle by using any one of these techniques:

- Refer to the owner’s manual
- Measure across the outside diameter of the wheel stud thread
- Bring a lug to your local hardware store and test it on available bolts
- A thread pitch gauge (can be found in almost every hardware store).

## Lug Nut Size: Common Lug Nut Size

The most commonly found lug nut sizes are:

- 10mm x 1.25
- 12mm x 1.25
- 12mm x 1.50
- 12mm x 1.75
- 14mm x 1.25
- 14mm x 1.50
- 14mm x 2.0
- 7/16″ x 20
- 1/2″ x 20
- 9/16″ x 20

## Lug Nut Size: Sockets

Whether you use a torque wrench, lug wrench, regular socket, or an impact socket, you have to use the right size to tighten or loosen lug bolt or lug nuts. The socket size is usually manufacturer-specific but it can change with time. A few of the more sizes you’ll find include:

- 23 mm
- 22mm (7/8″ fits too)
- 21mm (13/16″ fits too)
- 19mm (3/4″ fits too)
- 17mm

## Lug Nut Size: Types Of Lug Nuts

There are a variety of lug bolts and lug nuts out there. All eight of the lug nuts have a set of distinct features that make them suitable/unsuitable for a certain kind of vehicle. Many of these are rarely found outside the busy commercial scenery.

### 1. Conical Seat

Conical lug nuts, also known as acorn lug nuts, are the most common kind of lug nuts today. The seat usually bends inward at a 60-degree angle. Conical lug nuts fit perfectly inside a cone-shaped hole and are very easy to work with.

### 2. Ball Seat

Rather than a cone shape, the seat on ball lug nuts is spherical or rounded. Once installed, ball lug nuts and conical lug nuts are hard to differentiate between as they have very similar heads. A bit rarer than conical lug nuts, ball seat lug nuts are generally found on specific Volkswagen, Audi, and Honda cars.

### 3. Flat Seat

As the name would suggest, flat seat lug nuts have a flat seat and resemble washers. Amongst all the lug nuts available, flat seated ones are arguably the most difficult and frustrating to work with. Centering them can be rather tricky as they come with a small barrel that is supposed to enter the lughole.

If not centered properly, the stem tends to catch which makes it seem like the lug nut is fastened even though it isn’t. As the surface area of flat surfaces is more than others, these lug nuts are more prone to sticking and can be harder to remove.

### 4. Extended Thread

An extended thread (ET) features a longer thread, similar to the average conical lug nut. This is great in cases where the mounting surface and the wheel studs’ length do not allow necessary thread engagement for regular lug nuts.

The longer thread length facilitates engagement to securely attach the wheels and keep them like that.

### 5. Mag Seat

This is another kind of extended thread lug that comes with a washer seat instead. It’s primarily used in similar conditions where a longer thread is needed. However, instead of a tapered, conical bottom, they feature a flat seat. The washer may or may not be there. Mag seats used to be made from magnesium at one time and thus, the name.

### 6. Tuner Style

Different kinds of aftermarket wheels, particularly for Acuras, Hondas, and similar Asian tuner cars, are equipped with smaller diameter holes. Due to this, standard conical lug nuts do not fit so there is a need for narrower, tuner-style lug nuts. A special tuning key is needed to loosen or tighten these acorn seat tuner lugs. Then, a regular socket goes on top of the key like any other lug nut.

The tuning key is provided with a set of tuner lug nuts but you can also purchase one individually if the key is lost. As tuner-style lug nuts have openings in the center, moisture and air can get to the threads and studs and cause corrosion. Due to this, tuner-style lug nuts aren’t as popular as some of the other lug nuts types. Spline drive style is a better alternative.

### 7. Spline Drive

Spline drive lug nuts also have a conical seat and use a special key. The difference is that in place of an opening in the center, spline drive lug nuts feature narrow grooves on the sides and top of the lug nut to hold the key. But the problem with corrosion isn’t there so that’s a big plus.

It’s noteworthy that the pattern on tuner style and spline drive nuts isn’t unique; you can’t use them as a theft deterrent. Replacement keys are readily available online or in auto parts stores.

### 8. Lug Bolt

Used primarily on German cars such as Mercedes, Audi, Volkswagen, and BMW, lug bolt lug nuts come with a bolt/stud attached. They are directly threaded into the hub through the brake rotor hat.

Why Germans prefer bolts to nuts is a question as old as time but one explanation might be that it’s cheaper in comparison to pressing studs into a rotor assembly in manufacturing. Alternatively, replacing a broken lug nut is easier than replacing a stud.

Whatever it may be, installing the wheels becomes harder since you just cannot hang the wheels while the lug nuts are being installed. Instead, you have to first ensure the rotor plate holes align with the hub holes, then raise the wheel assembly, and secure it in place while the first few lug bolts are installed.

There are some methods you can use to make the task easier but regardless of everything, the process is still more complicated than one with lug nuts.

## Title: Lug Nut and Wheel Lock: Facts to Know

- Five components are essential to identifying the correct lug nut or wheel lock, including Thread Size, Thread Pitch, Seat Type, Length/Dimensions, and Finish/Color.
- Wheel studs are the threaded bolts protruding through the holes in wheels onto which lug nuts are threaded, and most vehicles have four or five wheel studs per wheel.
- Thread size is the measurement taken across the outside diameter of wheel stud threads measured in either standard or metric dimensions, with common sizes including 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, 7/16″, 1/2″, 9/16″, and 5/8″.
- Thread pitch is the measurement of either thread per inch for non-metric studs or the distance in millimeters between threads for metric applications.
- To identify the proper thread pitch, a tool is necessary, which can identify the original thread pitch that was on the vehicle from the factory.
- The seat type refers to the area where the lug nut actually makes contact with the wheel surface, with the most common types being acorn/tapered seat, mag seat, or ball seat.
- It is critical to confirm the dimensions of your lug nut or wheel lock, which include the outside diameter, overall length, shank diameter, and shank depth.
- Lug nuts and locks come in a variety of finishes and colors, including chrome plated, black chrome, stainless steel, zinc, yellow chromate, silver, red, and blue.

## Conclusion

Lug nut size varies because they serve different vehicles. They are not universal but understanding what works for your car isn’t difficult. If the wheels aren’t attached to your car well enough, you are setting yourself up for an unwanted accident. Pay attention to lug nuts safety!

## FAQs

Here are some popular FAQs:

### What Do The Numbers On Lug Nuts Denote?

Lugs in the US specify TPI or threads per inch, usually called thread count. 20 represents 20 threads in one inch whereas metric lugs denote a particular thread pitch – the distance between the threads. Thus, a 2 pitch has 2 millimeters between the threads.

### Which Way Are Lug Nuts Turned?

Line up the holes with the bolts and place the spare tire onto the vehicle’s wheel. Position the lug nuts over the bolts and twist them in a clockwise manner. Once the lug nuts have been tightened by hand, make sure the lug nuts are properly secured by using a lug wrench.

### Are Lug Nuts Tightened Clockwise?

To fasten the lug nuts, they have to be turned in a clockwise direction with a lug wrench. Having said that, ideally, a torque wrench would be used to tighten the nuts. The lug nuts would be fastened to their ft-lbs measurement which you can find in your owner’s manual.

It’s essential to ensure that the lug nut is properly torqued to the given specification. An overtightened lug nut puts pressure on both the stud and the nut, exhausting it out faster and possibly causing failure.

### How Do You Loosen A Lug Nut?

There are a few things you can do to loosen the tight lug nut before rotating it:

- A rust blaster or lubricant. Keep it wet and allow it time to work.
- Heat cycling. Gently heat the lug nut and allow it to cool. Repeat.
- Shocks and vibrations. Put a wrench around the nut. You don’t necessarily have to hit the nut super hard or over and over again for it to work.

### How Do You Lubricate Lug Nuts?

There are two kinds of people when it comes to lubricating lug nuts. One section swears by using some kind of anti-seize on the nut threads while the other would never put it close to their vehicle. The anti-seize can be WD-40, Teflon spray, motor oil, or lithium grease. The point is to prevent rust, making it easier to remove the lugs when needed.

### What Is Correct Lug Nut Engagement?

Thread engagement defines how many contacts the stud and lug nut are in. For your and other people’s safety, the correct thread engagement has to be maintained. In case of failure, an extended thread lug nut may be required. When an ET lug nut is being installed, you must make sure the holes in the wheel are large enough to fit the ET lug nut. The wheel cannot be secured properly if the lug nut is not long enough to hold the threads.

#### Outer Diameter Of Lug Nut

Being aware of the diameter of lug nuts is a necessity. Some lug nuts come with a hex nut shape specifically designed for a variety of normal sockets. Others feature a spline-like shape needing a special key. Locking lug nuts are available too. Those need a serial-numbered lug key to be installed/removed.

If you buy aftermarket lug nuts, ensure that you also have the hardware needed to install/remove them. Consider investing in a universal tire iron. Small diameter lug nuts are usually used on aftermarket wheels and need an adapter for removal/installation. Keep in mind that this adapter might be a different size than the OE lug head diameter.

### Are Lug Nuts Universal?

No, lug nuts aren’t universal, but this is a common mistake made by car owners. Similar to any kind of fastener, nuts (or lug bolts) have some differences which are often desired by one automobile maker or another. Thus, your choice of the vehicle plays a big role in determining which lug nut the wheels will come with.
