Wheel lugs
« on: September 03, 2011, 04:21:46 PM »
I want to clean up my wheel lugs and am trying to find the correct die to do it. I suspect it's 14mm but can't seem to get the  correct pitch. Does anyone have an answer? Thanks   Stephen

On my car it is 14mm 1.5pitch.  To be sure, you could take one of your lug nuts to a hardware store and try it on a few bolts of various size/pitch to confirm.

Well I received my die the other day and cleaned up my lugs today. The nuts tread on so much better . Stephen
