What size locking lug nuts to buy ??

Trying to order a set gorilla locking lug nuts and need help picking the right size for our newly purchased 25FB International Signature 2014. Can anyone help with thread pattern and size to buy?
Also would like to buy a good backup and or security camera to attach to it with Velcro to work with an app on our iPhones- any suggestions ?
Thanks !!

Buy made in USA...right here in WNY.
Mcgard👍🇺🇸👍

Did the camera thing with a Furrion.
Velcro with no hole drilling. Cut,(heat knife), a piece of closed cell sign board as a backing for the velcro and stainless countersunk hex machine screws with nylock nuts to attach.
Wiring brought thru/under the window weatherstrip and plugged into the 12v rear power port using a Lighted switch.

Just wondering what kind of neighborhood needs locking lug nuts on a travel trailer...is Florida a hotbed of RV trailer tire theft?

Why make it easy? Admittedly locks are for honest people. My AS is on the street at the moment. It’s thoroughly locked up as a matter of course.

OK, a 2014 is likely to have the OEM chrome capped lug nuts. They break after you torque them or if the airhammer folks have had their way. So replacement is a good thing to do.

Gorilla makes a splined lug nut set that requires a matching socket. It's included with the set. Kind of like having all the nuts be locking.

The threads are 1/2"-20.

The Mcgard are great nuts as well and often recommended as quality product. When I looked them up, I was surprised to see that they also offer splined nuts. Have not read anything about them, but bet they are good too.

Good luck with your choice, but torque them periodically. The aluminum wheel clamping surface deforms a bit. After a 50, 100, 250, & 500 mile check you should only have to torque them before each trip. However, a check now and then will keep you from losing nuts. Pat

Do you also torque the TV wheels before every trip?...our Burb also has the same style alloy wheels.

Never had a wheel leave.👍
