You should be able to find a set of 20 Dorman chrome lugs at Carid for about $50. My F150 takes 24 of them, and the correct metric thread size was less than $40. I punched up a 2011 RAM 1500, and it came up with 9/16x18 thread, chrome acorn, with a tapered seat.

I paid $125 at the dealer the last time, for the same OE style, that'll either deform again from impact use, or road salt will get in them and swell up. Same problem either way.

I checked on Amazon, Dorman 712-544 Wheel Nuts for my truck, a pack of 24 (4 extras) for only $21.64. 44% off! They are on the way. Thanks for the nut tips JFRisk.

I guess I shouldn't have blamed discount tire. I didn't know those shrouded nuts swelled up on their own.

You're very welcome, Bill. I'm sorry you had to go through all that work on yours. I've dealt with swollen ones on early GM vehicles a lifetime ago. No fun.

Finally got her back from the body shop. Very thankful for the Ranch Hand bumper as that saved the damage from being a lot worse than it could have been. I have a feeling the girl I hit will be paying more attention to the road, and especially stop signs, in the future.

On my big tow vehicle (the Ram), I repaired all 10 front wheel lug nuts. The yayhoos at Discount tire somehow damaged the sheet metal shrouds on the lug nuts and I couldn't get the 7/8" socket on them. I tried a 15/16 and a 23mm, both too big. So I had to hammer the socket onto each nut and remove it, then clamp the socket in my vise. Had to beat the nut out of the socket with hammer and screwdriver.

Then I filed on each nut for 5 or 10 minutes to make it so the socket would fit again. What a pain in the patootie.

The rear lug nuts aren't quite as bad, but I'll probably go through all of them tomorrow.
FYI, had this problem on my buddy's F150. Found out that they actually make sockets in half sizes to deal with this problem. If your truck usually takes a 22mm socket, you can buy a 22 1/2mm socket and it works great! Who knew?

From experience: If you want to replace chrome lug nuts that don't rust or deform, use McGard "Tough Nuts". They have really good chrome that holds up well to the elements and abuse.
