Hi folks. need your help.
I have a 2005 LY 30 on a P32 18,000 lbs gvwr chassis. 19.5 rims.
On last trip, I had 9 of the 10 wheel lugs on the left duals break off.
Lucky to be alive since I was going down a Tennesee mountain pulling a toad on I75 just before the Kentucy border at 60mph. Must have had some help.
The last lug that didn't break also held the wheel cover on.
Road service had a hard time finding replacements so not sure what lugs they put on. But they are shorter than the lug that held the wheel cover. So at the very least I need to replace one of the shorter lugs with a longer one to attach the wheel cover. ( wheel cover is held on with an extra nut on 2 of the lugs)
Not a mechanic but this is what I know. Both rims are steel. lug is 5/8" and nut is 1 in. Lug is flat on the on the inside end. But don't know the length nor the strength ( is that the right word?) of the lug required. They are supposed to torque to 175 lbs. Airstream factory techs were no help and can't seem to find info on internet.
Your info would be appreciated.
