Reply To: Ford lug nuts swell


Most if not all of these type of lug nuts are on several different vehicles. The lugs are designed in two parts, the inner lug and the chrome outer lug which is more or less a cheap cover or shield. The shielded parts tends to get deformed causing the lug wrench not to fit correctly. This is one of the first things we removed from our wheels. This is or was a growing concern and before you have issue like this, purchase a better more solid set of lugs.
