Lug Nut Size

Solved the tire delima. As a first timer and putting new tires on my 1976 27Ft Overlander, have made the decission to go with what the pros recommend. Goodyear Marathons. Will just have to let experience be the guide on future problems encountered for next purchase. I will certainly keep everyone posted. Thanks to everyone who responded to other post.

I need to know what size lug nut is on my trailer. 15'' rims, running 225/75R15 ST's. My AS is in Arizona at present and I am in Colorado,but will need to change the tires when I go there this week. I don't have a lug wrench and need to purchase one but sofar several people in the know have given me different sizes. The wheels and axles are original.

I have the original 15" aluminum wheels on my TW. It has lug bolts which are 13/16".

Recently I replaced the lugs and tires and polished the 15" rims. The trailer wheels had a combination of 12/16 and 13/16 lugs that had severely rusted. I replaced all the old lugs with 12/16 as they are more generally available and used a star wrench from Harbor Freight. Firestone
assured me there would be no problems with the smaller size acorn lugs.
