They are like Mobile Home Lug Bolts. So I think you can find them through Dexter Axles or a Mobile Home Dealer or Mover. That is, IF you really damaged them. I have them on my Car hauler/construction trailer which has Mobile Home axles.

'Spose that depends on your perspective! The Driver's side is the only one that is reversed from Normal!

Default Hope you get your problem solved

Wow!! you would be in a pickle on the side of the road with this problem. Dunn tire put our F250 lug nuts on so tight Dh had to fill the tire with air the best he could and limp across town. They had to use an impact wrench to get the flat tire off. Super Man strength!!

I just hate when shops do that....well my new tires are supposed to come fedex tomorrow, if early enough I will take the 2 and get the new ones mounted and blance then head bk to Alabama to put those on and hopefully if all goes well get the other two off and take them.up the road and get those 2 mounted blance and maybe I can bring her home. I am ready to have her home so I can be cleaning her up.

didn't I see somewhere the lugs suppose to be 80 ft pounds? I will have my torque wrench with me.

The sticker on my 15" white spoke wheels says 90 t0 120 fp, but different wheels probably require different torque values.

Being a little late to the party but have another suggestion to go along with everyone else's. I would chock the wheels of the trailer whether or not it is connected to the tow vehicle and break the lug nuts loose while sitting on the ground using a ratchet and a cheater bar over the handle. Of course you don't take them off yet but just to loosen them. Never had a problem that way!

That is kinda what I did, I broke loose on ground with my 4 way then used my rachet. Thanks everyone who posted. and most of all the one who suggested it having left hand threwds. I will be headed to Alabama today to put my two wheels bk on and hopefully getting the other two off my tires came late yesterday afternoon so had to wait till today. I really hate doing anything on Fridays but oh well

Well, I got the other two off. the one we did everything to get loose were.. well let's say we had those very very tight, I broke my 1/2 inch to 3/8 torque reducer. .. ended up getting help from her sisters husband who had a corded impact it took them right off. got the tires changed out and put bk on the trailer and we just got home with it. I'm finished driving for the night. I will drive to the place it will get parked at in the morning it's only about 15 more miles. it's almost dark here

again thanks to all who helped

Yeah, it's been a long week.. But I did get it to my parents this morning and been cleaning her up all day and finding new adventures, someone seemed to redo the toilet plumbing and left it not hooked up trying find fittings and hoses to get that working and figuring out about the crack in the tub it's bigger then first thought.
