  • Lug Nuts on 2018 Imagine Cover Cracked

    Just finished my first wheel bearing maintenance on 2018 2250RK Imagine and had to replace all lug nuts. The lug nuts were 2 piece design with thin outer cover that cracked when removing lug nuts with impact wrench. Bought solid one piece lug nut set off Amazon to replace cracked lug nuts. Not sure if other have had same problem.

        I must need more coffee....neither "OrionMoterTech" nor "OMTT8004" returns anything on Amazon. I'll try again later after I wake up.

        Just curious whether you used a 12 point or a 6 point socket to remove the original lug nuts? There have been reports of 12 point sockets tearing the stainless cover off the lug nuts, but using a 6 point socket seems to work OK.

          In addition to using a 6 point socket I always break the lug nuts loose by hand then finish removing with an impact wrench.

            Used 6 point socket and Milwaukee 18 volt impact wrench. Use low torque setting when installing lug nuts and finish tightning with torque wrench.

              I am frankly surprised that GDRV is still installing these tin covered lug nuts. I thought they had moved away from this years ago.

              When we got our 303 back from the factory with new axles/16" tires & wheels in June, 2018, GDRV installed chrome (not tin covered) lug nuts. Many of us years ago replaced the tin covered lug nuts with real chrome lug nuts. We got ours at Costco as did many other folks. I would suggest replacing the "tin covered nuts" to eliminate the removal and installation challenges and frustration.
