Out on the rough trail that makes up off-roading, your machine's wheels take a beating. It is important to look after air pressure and tire rotation, of course, but what about the small stuff? Lug nuts have the important job of keeping your wheel attached to the axle, so make sure you trust the sets you have attached to your machine. Like the rest of your off-road vehicle, they should be tough enough to hold together under pressure. Check them often to make sure they are still doing their job and haven't deformed.
How Often Do You Replace Truck Lug Nuts?
Regular tire use, along with torquing, puts pressure on the bolts and the lug nuts and deforms them over time. How often they need replacement depends on use and the quality of the hardware being used, but a good rule of thumb is every year. Practice good torquing habits, like never torquing hot and applying only as much force as needed, to save those hard-working nuts from some extra stress. Some of the damage that warrants replacing the hardware comes from the base bolt expanding and deforming the cap, which is an unavoidable consequence of regular driving.
