I agree! Which is why I am placing an order for new lugs from our good friend above!

Can anyone else chime in on the size of the lug nuts for my 2004 Trailer. I am almost assuming its half inch diameter. Dealer said the thread is 1.25.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Official word is MC was still running 1/2-20 lugs through 2012.

Note: Low profile MC trailers may have metric lugs.

1.25 would imply a metric lug and lug nut. I think I'd take one in somewhere and have the size verified.

Good call. Not all of mine were stamped, but i found 1 that certainly was stamped 1/2-20. HTe lug I had by my computer previously was not stamped.

Found my new lugs in the mailbox today after getting home from Traverse City. FiancÚ obviously hasn't checked the mail. Either way I got them. Thanks again for all your help Peter!
