FWIW, this is what a grade 8 nut looks like
I went out and checked the Gr.8 nut drawer in my garage, and they look like this.

|cchartrand||Nice link. Unfortunately it just leads to more questions. Clearly those nuts are graded. Back to my original question... Again, none of those gradings, correlate w/ bolt gradings. Could you help me out w/ bolt Vs. nut grading?|

The nuts to be used with Grade 8 fasteners are almost always gold colored and have a digit or number stamped on one side.
Always use these nuts and washers on Grade 8 bolts.

|Sinister6||Typically the Grade 8 nuts will have the gold finish like the grade 8 bolts assuming they don't have a coating (zinc). The benefit of the GR8 nut in my opinion is if they are located in a place you can't get socket or box wrench. A open end or crescent could round a GR5 but the hardness of the GR8 might help prevent it. If I weld a nut to something I ALWAYS use the GR8... Others may have their own opinion...|

Grade 8 NUTS
Hi guys. I have some questions on grade 8 NUTS. Notice I said NUTS. I am well aware of how to identify a grade 8 BOLT, I'm just curious about nut identification. I'm also wondering how important a grade 8 nut would be. I'm thinking a grade 5 would be fine depending on which way the shear force is applied. Thoughts?????
