Lug Nuts

Hello,

Does anybody know what size the lug nuts are on a 356QBQ?

I was thinking these were it, but I don't want to guess.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001O0ANTI/

Need to order a replacement set for the aluminum wheels and an additional steel set for the steel RIM spare (Evidently you can't run aluminum lugs on a steel wheel and the trailer didn't come with any).

If I can figure out the lug size I can get both sets I need.

Thank you!

Dunno.

Take ONE off. Take it to Lowe's hardware section. They have bolts to put nuts on that are labeled, so you know what size.

I've never heard of that. Hold on and you'll get plenty of replies. 1/2 is a pretty common size in the RV industry but taking one off and sticking a 1/2 bolt in there would give you a definitive answer.

That Amazon price is pretty high.
Ebay has LOTS of 1/2 acorn nuts. Just a quick check found 24 piece set for $22 incl shipping. https://www.ebay.com/itm/24Pcs-Bulge...xaEx4a&vxp=mtr

Some trailers have a different size lug nut holding the spare on the bumper mount.
You need a wrench to fit the spare to get it off the bumper and ANOTHER size to get the wheels off the trailer axles. Maybe this is causing confusion??

There are aluminum rims that require special lug nuts (i.e. flat, 45 cone, etc.), but most RV rims take the standard 60 cone lug nuts whether aluminum or steel.

Our RV has 6-lug 12" hubs with aluminum wheels and they take 1/2" 20 tpi 60 cone lug nuts. I ordered 25 solid stainless steel (not just covered) of them from etrailer when I replaced the steel wheels with aluminum.

Check with the wheel mfg if you're not sure what lug nuts you need.

I used the same lug nuts from my aluminum wheels on my steel spare this summer without a problem. Should be a standard cone lug nut on it.

I have never heard of aluminum lug nuts. I certainly would cringe every time I had to take them off or put them back on. I would probably switch them out to steel lug nuts if it were me.

Most tire stores have a large assortment of lug nuts.

Another thing

If you are getting replacements lug nuts ensure that in addition to the lug diameter (1/2") that you also ensure that the socket size is the same. I got replacements for one hub on my boat trailer and ended up needing 2 different size lug wrench/sockets. I wrongly assumed if fit fit the lug the socket size would be the same.

Never heard of aluminum lug nuts either.

If you actually were referring to lug nuts that are used on aluminum rims then they are not made of aluminum.
Most are steel covered with nothing more than chrome plated tin.
They get damaged easily with 12 point sockets and can be a PITA.
I have had to change out several tires over the years.
I've always installed the steel spare with the same lug nuts as the aluminum factory wheel. No problems to date.

As Bama Rambler mentioned, buying SOLID lug nuts is a good option.
The ones in your link look like a good choice for either wheel.
