Be sure the fastener seat matches the seat in the wheel. Proper thread size is also incredibly important. The last thing you want to do is cross thread or seize your lugs on your vehicle stud, requiring more than just camp tools to fix. Do not put oil or lubricant on the threads of either the stud or lugs nuts/bolts and always re-torque the lug nuts/bolts after 25-50 miles of use.
Proper Thread Engagement:
This is critically important. Make sure you have a minimum thread engagement of the diameter of the vehicle stud (as recommended by OEM). An example is, if the stud size of your vehicle is ½” then you will need a minimum of ½” of threads into the lug nut. If for some reason you do not have this minimum then it is recommended that you use an ET Type nut (Extended Thread). ET Type nuts are useful when using spacers.
Proper Torque (tightening):
Over tightening lug nuts/bolts can fatigue the vehicle studs or lug bolts or in some cases will damage or destroy the wheels and/or hub assembly.
There are 3 basic type lug nuts: Conical/Acorn Seat (cone shape), Spherical/Ball Seat (round or ball shape), and a Flat Washer (commonly known as Mag Type).
