Howdy,

I have a 99 CVPI and I just got my police hubcap (not the pancake ones) and some Explorer lugnuts. I put the lugs on and and the cap doesn't go on. The cap isn't hard to get on, it just doesn't stay on at all. I can't hammer it down at all because it already touches the rim. Are the explorer lugnuts not the right kind for these hubcaps? I went to 12 (yes 12) Auto stores to find 20 of these things and now they don't work. What EXACT lugnuts do I need and where other than the stealership can I get them? Better yet, what are some part numbers for the EXACT ones I need?

Thanks in advance!

You have these caps?



Then you need these lugnuts



I bought 12. I used 3 per wheel and 2 of the ordinary ones and the caps where still on tight.
But I don't have the part #, I just asked for the 99 Police lugnuts for center caps from the dealer, They were about $1.50 a pop.

03-04 STEEL WHEEL. 6W7Z-1007-D NO LONGER AVAILABLE **
04-08 STEEL WHEEL. 3W7Z-1007-F MSRP $89.72
03-08 BEER CAN. 3W7Z-1130-BA. MSRP $68.53
03-06 LUG NUT. 6W7Z-1012-CA. MSRP $5.02

* Ford Ranger and F-150 center cap and lug nuts are less expensive and easier to find.
** Great wheel! Voluntary recall due to 3 reported accidents and 13 reported weld cracks. I use a pair up front.
Steel wheel with full wheel cover lug nuts will not hold center caps. FoMoCo is scheduled to increase part prices shortly. Your local quality auto parts or hardware store sell them for forty cents.

I found 'em. Had to go to four more auto stores but I got 'em all. The ones I bought before didn't have such an extreme collar around the nut.

i'm betting the ones you bought are for the dog dish style cap.

The hubcaps or lugnuts?

The two types of lugnuts I got were DEFINATELY NOT the same. :P

Not exactly. The dog dish lugz do not hold beer cans securely. They work if you futz with the center cap clips. Can be embarrassing when a wheel cover goes down the road faster than the car.
