Are these the right lug nuts? 20" HarleyD wheels

When I bought my truck a 2005 F350 FWD it had a set of 20" ford wheels on it. I noticed when I got the truck home the front lugs were a little loose. I didn't think much about it and figured maybe the previous owner had different rims on it and before selling it he swapped out to these factory 20's.

I noticed once or twice those original rims when I'd check the lugs they were a bit loose. I chalked it up to me not tightening them enough with the 4way.

Well I found a set of 20" Harley wheels on facebook with the size tire I want to put back on the truck so I snapped them up. The wheels look identical to what I took off but the HD wheels have a bit more flair added to their design..

Well this time I made sure to tighten them with an impact gun. I just noticed the rear wheels, both of them the lugs are again loose...

I'm thinking these can't be the right lug nuts.. They seem too long for the studs, so I'm wondering if maybe these lugs are either too tall or did they use longer studs on 20" wheel trucks? I attached a picture and seems to me the lugs or the studs are not right and that's my issue.. Anyone know?

Also if you notice the rims are scared up a bit where it appears the original lugs were bigger in diameter.


Edit.. when I look on Summit Racing just to see if they have diffrent ones listed I see two styles. One is a tiny bit shorter than the other..

Was checking on Summit because they have pictures and full specs, I don't think that's enough o matter TBH, but I dunno what the size is of mine now.

Those look to be OEM lugs but those are not technically correct for the HD wheels. The ones pictured are of OEM style for other OEM wheels. They utilize a faux cover that covers the axle and snaps into the lugs to be held in place.
The HD edition lugs are longer, closed ended tall chrome style. They have a much better "apperance" over the other styles. I can't recall how but there is an HD styled axle cover that is fitted with the proper lug nuts.

I'm just using the normal super duty style centers, don't have the HD ones and yeah the lugs are Ford OEM's so far as I know but I'm just uncertain is that enough stud coming through the lug? Is that the normal amount for aluminum wheels on these trucks?

Remove the wheel. Make sure the hub and bore are clean. Install wheel making sure it's centered and sitting flat/flush on the hub. TQ to spec.

As long as the stud threads are extending past the lug you are getting full engagement. My only comment would be make sure you are going to the property torque specification. These lugs aren't your normal 100 lb/ft.
