Nut size on Berk Wheels

Anyone know the size of the lug nuts on the Berks?

I need to buy one to check the torque on them.


Thanks,
Ken

22.5 tires?

1-5/16 or 33mm @ 450 foot pounds.

You will likely need a torque multiplier or.

You will never break the nuts free with a conventional torque wrench. I bought this. Works great and comes with socket

http://www.amazon.com/Torque-Multipl...Lug+Nut+Wrench

You can find videos on YouTube to see how they work.

Does it come with an extension long enough to get at the nuts on the rear wheels ?

I have the simulators but a buddy that has the chrome wheels said that they turn off. Have right and left hand threads depending on which side you are on like the old lug nuts 40 years ago. I have never seen it my self.

I miss understood the question. This answer refers to the chrome covers over the rear hubs, not the lugs.
