Rounded out lug nut help
Posted 15 November 2019 - 09:21 PM
I rounded out one of the small lug nuts that holds the rear spacer to the hub. I'm pretty sure the stud is still good as I always hand torque and use anti-sieze. I don't think the short lug nuts H&R provides are very good honestly as far as metal density and strength to prevent this kind of thing.
No one-not one tire/wheel shop wants to touch it because of "liability with wheel spacers". I'm left to do this job on my own it seems. What do you recommend?

Always make sure that you use a six sided socket (hexagonal) when tightning or loosing nuts then this very rarely happens.
I would try the method KNOTZLA has suggested just make sure it`s a quality socket so it doesn`t crack. Good luck.
I always do. Hand tighten with anti sieze with a six point each time and then finish carefully with a torque wrench. I think I may have been a little careless with this one upon removal.
