Re: dually conversion lug studs

Is your truck a factory 4x4 chassis cab DRW or a conversion? On my conversion the lugs are unique and I haven't found them yet. Haven't looked for studs. From one of my previous posts:

"The OBS F-Super Duty lugs don't match up either and the F-350 chassis cab 4x4 lugs are the same as the F-350 2WD. Measuring with my caliper the inner diameter of a factory DRW lug nut is .499 inches and the conversion lug is .574 inches. On the outside, where you'd put an open end wrench on is .869 inches on the factory lug and 1.057 inches on the conversion lug. Height on the factory lug is 1.033 inches and .812 inches on the conversion. Truck also has Rockwell steel wheels rated at 2500 pounds each. Maybe that will help if someone else runs into one of these."

I was able to get a fixed washer lug in at Napa. I suspect they also have the studs but I've never had the need for one. You might check with www.arrowcraft.com if your truck is a conversion. They still sell the spacer/adapters and might have studs.

If those are very long studs that thread onto the factory studs, then pass thru an aluminum spacer...Very bad news. They were put on Centurion dually conversions including my 96 4X4. When looking for them, I was told the company that made them was sued out of business. The nut ends would gall the threads, break off, and caused some wrecks.

The hole space also fills with sand, dirt, etc in time. The aluminum warps from brake heat. They can get stuck--big time. At least a NC truck wouldn't have as much road salt and rust freezing them in the hole.
Hope that's not what your looking for. Beware, I have seen them turn up for sale unused. The liquidated inventory left over maybe floating around on e-bay at times. Sold by close out companys--as is. So beware.
If you have a photo, I can tell you if you have the time bomb type.

I went with full arrowcraft billet steel replacements. I liked the quality so well, I became a parts dist for them. If you go with a replacement adaptor, make sure of the weight rating no matter who's it is. Arrowcraft is 10.000 lbs per adapter. I don't think the other's are rated as heavy, and usually are only made from aluminum.
TC, and good luck.
