I was just finishing the brake and tire replacement job on my Overlander this Saturday and on the last wheel I stripped the threads out of one hole of one of my hubs!! I still have the original style hubs that take the bolts. I was afraid of this happening because when I pulled everything apart some weeks ago I noticed the bolt threads were only engaging about a half inch of the hub threads. I have the original aluminum mags and was wondering if the factory failed to put the proper length lug bolts on the trailer. I will Helicoil the bad hub thread and will try to find longer lug bolts. You can see the shiny part, the only part where the threads were engaging one another.
Has anyone else had this experience? I would be curious to see what lug bolt lengths anyone else has who owns a similar 70's era trailer with the factory mags.
here's a pic of my current lug bolts which have about 7/8" an inch of thread on them.
