Spare wheel lug nuts

I went out the my camper today to get the wheels off so I can put new tires on them. I had bought a socket for the lug nuts on the wheels, but the lug nuts on the spare are not the same size. The lug nuts on my spare wheel are 13/16.

It would have really sucked finding that out on the side of the road without the correct socket.

That's crazy. I imagine the dealer installs the spares. I know when we looked at ours before we bought it the dealer said it still had the factory shipment rims and tires on it. Maybe they added the spare later once they had it sold and just put different lugs on.

I actually checked the spare lugs on ours when preparing for our 1st big trip as an afterthought while checking the tire PSI.

One more thing to put on the PDI list.

I verified the wrench for my truck fits the lug nuts of my trailers.
I also carry a 1/2" socket set with sockets up to 1 1/4" and a 1/2" torque wench in my truck just in case. It came in handy when replacing the anode in the water heater.

I bought an aftermarket tire mount and those nuts were 3/4 inch.

I bring so many sockets ( and other tools ) when we travel, I could probably build ( or disassemble ) a suspension bridge. No worries.

It might be worth a try,

to see if you can actually loosen a nut.

You can add a piece of pipe to assist, if needed.
