Question 03 Lug Nut Help!

I have a 2003 F250 4x4 6.0 PSD with a build date of 03/2003 and I can't seem to find the right lug nuts. I ordered some 14mm x 1.5 and they didn't work but that is what all the application guides said was the right one. When I bought the truck it had the factory wheels and factory lug nuts on it so I konw it's stock. What other size could they be? I know the 02 and older had 14mm x 2.0 would there be a chance these are the correct ones? I have looked through other threads but haven't found the answer i'm looking for.

Thats what I was thinking to. So would that be a 14mm x 2.0? I am not to familiar with how the different sizes of lug nuts work. They have to make this crap so fricken confusing.

My late 99 has the course lugs and it takes the 14mm X 2.0's but when getting them think you still have to say fine or course thread

I am trying to order them online and it says the thread size is 14mm x 2.0, I always thought the 2.0 was the length but I think it might be the thread, which would make sense if the 1.5 is fine and 2.0 is coarse. I am in the outstanding country of Iraq right now so I can't just run down to the lovely uniformed parts store.

The 2.0 or 1.5 is the thread pitch.

03+ should use the 14mmx1.5

99-02 used the 14mmx2.0

That is what I have been reading but there lies the problem. I have a 2003 with a 6.0 and 14mm x 1.5 will not work on my truck. I know the charts say it should fit but it doesn't.

ok--can you kind of half-arsed thread the thing on, as in, is the diameter right and the threads will only catch for maybe1/3 to 1/2 of a turn?

if so, wrong pitch. if the thread wont engage at all, you have the wrong diameter nut.

Ok, I am doing this all over the phone because I am still in Iraq so I am doing the best I can. Anyway they are the correct diameter and they "act like" they want to start is what I was told. Does that mean I need 14mm x 2.0.
