Lug Nuts

I just ordered the Sendel 16" T03 wheels. Can or should I use the stock lug nuts on the new wheels??? Our trailer is a 09 27' International dual axle with the OEM wheels. Here's a pic of the OEM wheels.

Get rid of the OEM cheepies and go with the best.
None of that chrome cap crap, solid quality.

Also have them install metal valve stems, not rubber like the originals.

Craig,
I just got new 16" wheels with Michelins for both my trailers. Bob is right. For a few bucks more why not eliminate all the doubts on lug nuts and start with new? One set of my wheels look identical to yours. Its a good choice!!

That is something I also had them install on my wheels. Seems like it would be safer than rubber stems. The originals on my '02 had metal stems also.

Robert: Reading other threads looks like McGard is the Lug Nut of choice, Thanks.

dkottum: Ordered the metal stems when I made the order.

FYI: Ordered five 16" Sendel T03SM (silver machined), caps and metal stems, with Michelin LTX M/S2 225/75R 16 E Tires, mounted balanced at local Discount Tire shop for $2030.00 with road hazard. Probably not the best price, but a very easy transaction close to the house.

Also I checked Discount Online and was told No they could not order the wheels. Local Discount store could and priced matched Tredit.

Lug nut specs

If ordering new lug nuts, when switching to the 16" Sendel wheels, how do you figure out the size/style of lug nut to order? There are so many options. Someone mentioned they had ordered:1/2-20 McGard #64010– stainless steel. Is this the right size/type? I understand that stainless is the way to go - but these appear to be chrome or at least chrome coated, and I thought that was what was wrong with the OEM lugs?

It has been said, but do order new caps, too. They don't come standard with the wheels. I had a little trouble locating them but found some on ebay.

I got these lug nuts from Amazon:

McGard 24138 Chrome Cone Seat Wheel Locks and McGard 64010 Chrome Bulge Cone Seat Style Lug Nuts (1/2" - 20 Thread Size)

I will install the 16" wheel size only specific Centramatic wheel balancers part number :
Centramatic 300-356 all A plates for 16" rims

Note that the smaller Centramatic 200-221 Special is for 15" rims, but will fit the 16" rims.

The Michelin LT225/75R16/E LTX M/S2 tires (Michelin part number 05681) will be mounted to four SenDel Aluminum T03-66655T wheels and one SenDel S62-66655TG galvanized spare wheel after the Dill 1506-453 TPMS sender units are installed on the wheels. I have a fifth aluminum wheel in the it's box just in case.
