What size or Gorilla lug nut locks part number will work on the renegade?
I put Gorilla locks on my Challenger 2 years ago and they worked great. Does anyone know a set that will fit sized wise on the renegade? I don't want the Mopar 4pc set, I want a black set of 20pc. for each lug on the rim.
Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Help

I too have standard lug nut bolts. I wish to get the Locking type, 1 on each wheel. So What I see from above, is the whole screw. What about just the screw on nut? Sorry I have no clue about how I would put these on the wheel Please advise
Thanks so much

You do not have lug nut Nuts screw on to a bolt. The renegade has lug BOLTS. Long threaded bits that screw into threaded holes in the hubs.

If you go to change your tire on the renegade, after you break them loose, jack it up, and undo the things you put the socket on on the wheel and unscrew, you will wind up with a bunch of things that look like this in your hand

This is the first car I ever had with lug bolts. My first car was a 1966 Chevy Chevelle. Every car I had since and up to the Renegade had lug nuts.

I'm not sure what the advantage is of using lug bolts. But it is more difficult to hold the wheel in place while starting one of the bolts. I find it much easier to place the wheel on fixed studs and have two hands free to start the nuts.

I might have to get a pair of those temporary stud locators to make it easier. I know it was posted on this forum somewhere.

Here you go.

The Renegade, Cherokee and Dart stud bolts are 12mm x 1.25. NOT 12 x 1.50. And the Renegade stud bolts are shorter than both the Cherokee and Dart. With a shank length of 22mm. So you will need stud bolts that are 12 x 1.25 x 22. So far gorilla only has a set of 4 available. I personally would like to replace all 20 so that they match in color and style.

These lug stud bolts will work:[ame]http://www.amazon.com/Gorilla-Automotive-47124N-Thread-Wheel/dp/B00SF8EUXM[/ame]

Since the OEM lug bolts on the TH are so lame, I plan on replacing all of them with the Gorilla black chrome.

Are you sure those are the correct ones ? looks like 12mm x 1.50 and they are 28mm long not 22mm long.

See what ryanmfraser posted below:

Hate for you to order the wrong ones :)

When you check the fitting on Gorillas amazon store it says they do not fit the renegade.
The lug bolt size is in the owner's manual, AKA the most unread book in the world. I actually measured the shank length myself. 28mm is definitely too long.

Thanks guys. I checked them a few weeks ago and if memory serves me correctly the extra length seemed to be in the head, which there is plenty of room for. I'll double check it and advise.
