Lug Nuts

Can someone tell me the size of the lug nuts on a 2011 25' FB Flying Cloud? I just purchased a torque wrench and need to by a socket. My trailer is in storage 100 miles from my home.

thanx for your help.

I have an '07, so if you have the same wheels the only thing that fits my lug nuts is a 13/16" thin wall socket because they are recessed into the wheels.

The torque varies by wheel type. I would check with your wheels manufacture for the proper value.

My 2008 Intl 28 uses 3/4" lug nuts. Check the spec page in your owners manual for the torque setting. Mine is 110. Oh and I use a 4 inch extension on my torque wrench.

2010 25' FB Flying Cloud takes a 3/4" 6-point spark plug length socket for a 1/2" drive torque wrench. Proper torque is 120 lbs.

Antique Pedaler, I think you made an error and it should have read 13/16" for the socket. That is the standard for spark plugs ( later ones are 5/8") for many, many years. The 6pt sockets are always best for lug nuts.

Just trying to be helpful. I guess if you want to burr your lugs you could use the larger size. This socket is 3 1/4" long to clear the hub.

Sparks plugs come in a variety of sizes including 3/4".
