Lug Nuts

I have a stripped stud which needs replacing. While I am at it I want to replace those stock cheap covered lug nuts. Does anyone know what size or spec I need to order, or if you have replaced yours can you tell me which lug you used.

These are 8 bolt wheels, on a 6,000 lb axels. I have a 2013/14 Palamino Sabre 32 RCTS. I see these wheels a lot on other rigs. Mine are supplied by Lions Head.

Any help is appreciated.

I, too, would like to replace lug nuts on my 2013 Sabre that appear to be identical to yours. Two of them ( of the 32in all) appear to be stripped in that they spin when I attempt to tighten them. I am not quite sure how to remove them should the need arise.

Lug Covers

I think you need to find a way to rip off the spinning cover. Underneath the cover should be a nut you can grab. That is my understanding. Hopefully someone will respond with the info. If not I will eventually remove a lug and take it to a good auto shop to be sized.

In general terms.

Jack one wheel off the ground.
Remove that tire.
Remove center dust cap, hammer and a screw driver should work or a pair of channel locks.
Remove cotter pin and castle nut.
Pull the drum off.
Place the drum on a sturdy work station, place a old lug nut on a stud and then smack lug nut with a big hammer till stud drops free.

Or.

You can also a heavy drift pin along with the hammer. Makes the job easier.

Good method. Easier to use a hammer up/down than sideways.

I always seem to hurt myself holding one, locking it in a pair of vice grips has saved me much pain.
