As a 2012 Ford F150 owner, you might be curious about the size of the lug nuts that hold your wheels to the vehicle. Lug nuts are vital parts that keep your wheels connected to the hub and stop them from falling off while driving. Knowing the right lug nut size for your F150 can help you prevent issues such as damaged threads, loose wheels, or ruined rims.
What size are 2012 Ford F150 lug nuts?
The lug nuts for a 2012 Ford F150 have a size of M14 x 2.0. This means that the lug nuts have a thread width of 14 millimeters and a thread spacing of 2 millimeters. The thread spacing is the gap between two neighboring threads on the lug nut.
The lug nut has a total length of 50.80 mm. The head width is 0.91″. It is advised to use aftermarket lug nuts, such as Gorilla lug nuts, as the original ones change shape when they are taken off and tightened again.
What size socket are 2012 Ford F150 lug nuts?
The socket size that you need to take off or put on the lug nuts on your 2012 Ford F150 depends on the hex size of the lug nut. The hex size is the measurement of the flat edges of the lug nut that fit into the socket.
Different types and brands of lug nuts may have different hex sizes, so it is important to check the details of the lug nuts that you have or intend to buy. For example, some of the lug nuts available at O’Reilly Auto Parts have a hex size of 21 mm, while others have a hex size of 19 mm or 3/4 inch.
To find the right socket for your lug nuts, you can either measure the hex size with a caliper or ruler, or use a trial-and-error method by trying different sockets until you find one that fits well and does not slip or harm the lug nut.
What torque are 2012 Ford F150 lug nuts?
The torque is the amount of pressure that you apply to tighten the lug nuts on your 2012 Ford F150. Torque is measured in foot-pounds (ft-lbs) or Newton-meters (N-m). Applying the right torque to your lug nuts is important to ensure that they are not too loose or too tight.
If the lug nuts are too loose, they may come off while driving, causing your wheel to separate from the hub and possibly cause an accident. If the lug nuts are too tight, they may damage the threads on the lug nut or the wheel stud, making it hard or impossible to remove them in the future.
The suggested torque for 2012 Ford F150 lug nuts is 150 ft-lbs or 203 N-m. You can use a torque wrench to measure and apply the right torque to your lug nuts. A torque wrench is a tool that has a gauge or indicator that shows how much torque you are applying.
