Question on OEM AS lug nuts for a 2015 FC 23 5 bolt/14" wheels. Assume they still just have covers over the lug nut?

Recommendations on best ones to replace the OEM ones with?

Yes, the FC23 uses same lug nut as the six hole trailers. Size is 1/2-20 and Gorillas or McGards do the job. The Gorillas actually come in a 24 nut package so you get some spares if you are using them on the 5 hole wheels. Pat

Note the Gorillas use a spline socket. You may not like that. Your call.

Found mine on Amazon, but just checked and "currently out of stock". They were listed for Mercedes Sprinter...."Alcoa" lug nut covers. You may be able to locate that way

Most of those Amazon listings I looked at called them a Winnebago part. They are actually an Alcoa wheel accessory. Check this document from Alcoa for latest info. The lug nut covers are part number 000120
http://www.alcoa.com/alcoawheels/cat..._SellSheet.pdf

They should be available from any distributor that sells Alcoa wheels. But I'm having trouble finding them online as everything points to Amazon, who dominate the simple search world.

Go to this site to find an Alcoa distributor in your area
http://www.alcoa.com/alcoawheels/nor...or/default.asp

I recall someone located and inexpensive source, beside Alcoa, some time back, but I'm having trouble finding it. I'll keep looking because I'll probably need some one of these days.

Yep. The one I bought was listed for Winnebago, Pleasure Way and Roadtrek. Exact appearance match and snapped into place very tightly.

Here is one of the sources for the lug nut covers I was looing for. It was over on the Sprinter-Source Forum, under the LTV Unity area.

http://www.sprinter-source.com/forum...99&postcount=9

Here is text:
"Re: Alcoa Wheels -- Tool ? Lug Nut Cover
After much research, was referred by ALCOA to Haltec Corp. in Salem, Ohio for the lug nut covers. Should you need to order them (000120 style) they cost about $20.00 for six plus $14.00 shipping. They DBA: Independent Operator Direct LLC., P.O. Box 170, Winona, OH 44493 & phone # is 888-699-7031. This will hopefully save someone time futilly searching the net."

I looked at the Haltec Corp web site but couldn't find them. These thins are commonly called hug-a-lug covers.

Hope this helps,
- - Mike

Can anyone tell me how I determine style, size and pitch for my 2015 Interstate Grand Tour? I want to replace my covers with the chrome plated steel lug nuts. Just don't know how to determine what to purchase.

Thanks

That's what I put on my wheels. A little pricey but solid and no signs of rust after many torques.
