What gives?

I have two trucks ( one for parts)

DD is an E99

Parts is a 2000, both 4x4

I though the E99 had different lug nut thread pitch? On a whim I decided to try swapping a lug and they fit...

Which of these trucks is the bastard?

If the hubs have been replaced they could have used a hub with a different than original thread.

Not likely. My E99 is very low mileage

I got excited, then sad.

I went to put my factory hub caps on my aftermarket rims. Used the lugs from my parts truck and everything is going great, an they look great.

Then I get to the last rim and notice something.

Factory rims are hub centric, with flat lugs.

My aftermarket rims are lug centric, with conical seat lugs.

Therefore my idea to use the stock lugs/ centre caps from the parts truck is totally bunk. Damn.

E'99 will have unit berrings and rotors with slightly diffrent wheel mounting surface depth when compaired to later model trks. Later bearings and rotors are also cheaper. I swapped my E'99 to later berrings and rotors so all 3 trks would use the same spare I keep on the shelf in the shop.

Lug nuts changed thread pitch around '02 IIRC. Went from early coarse thread to finer thread. Wheel offset changed with the coil spring front end in '05.

Okay thanks. I was under the impression that the E99 trucks also had a different thread pitch.


Actually I'm sure some do, I've seen two different wheel bearings on websites for E99
