      Search Google for "lug nut", fifth or so link will be the Gorilla Automotive website, click on link, scroll down to the bottom, click on Application Guide, click on resulting website for the PDF.

      Alternate - remove one lug nut, go to Home Depot or Lowes or whatever hardware store, find the right size bolt that will thread into the lug nut.

      Double-check everything before you impact them on too.

      Napa, CSK, etc, all say my Super Duty stud size is 9/16", while in actuality it's 14x1.5. So triple check.
