The lug nuts I ordered are late arriving. Fedex often sits on packages for way out here until they get a bunch. Even though we're not that far from town, it is what they call a "satellite run," and many drivers don't like going out of their way until they have lots of packages to deliver in the area. This is a common complaint many in many rural areas, especially with the Fedex-to-post office deliveries. I have no idea when they might show up, and I'd like to get my tires on while I have opportunity.

If I have read correctly, the factory lug nuts are the same size as what I ordered to use with my new wheels/tires (MT Classic III wheels). Besides color, why couldn't I use the factory lug nuts off of the 2010 JKU Moab factory wheels? Is there something I'm just not aware of? Thank you for the assistance.

We are using factory lugs on these (classic III and MTZ's). As said above, DON'T FORGET TO REMOVE THE RETAINING CLIPS!!!

They look badass. Can't wait to see how they look on the jeep. I plan to put them on tomorrow.
Me too! I will be ordering that size for the black jeep soon (same rims). PLEASE POST pics as soon as they go on!

THANKS

DUDE! That looks PERFECT! Perfect width and height.

These pics made the decision to go 35's on mine a bit easier. THANKS and CONGRATS!

Thanks! Recalibration is next, then full sized spare and better carrier. Very happy with them. Handles a little differently, but that is to be expected. Running 35psi. I'll experiment some to find the sweet spot. I was happy (and a bit surprised) that I do not hear road noise. My daughter could not tell the difference either. I've owned mud tires, so I'm familiar with how they can sing. I drove with the radio off and windows down for as long as we could stand the cold breeze, and I heard nothing much different than the stock tires. Certainly no mud tire howl. Very satisfied.
