Reply To: Ford lug nuts swell


This has been an issue for many years. In an emergency take a screw driver and a hammer and peel off the fake chrome cap. They you will have a regular lug nut ( don’t remember the size) that you can take off. As far as the ones on Amazon, I have not seen any chrome lug nuts that have the same identical taper where they fit into the wheel ( not sure on the technical word for it). If you found a set on Amazon please post the link. I have always kept a spare set of lug nuts and as I see them swell, I replace them. Pain in the neck but it works.
