    As title says, what is the rear axle thread pitch?

    I believe 7/16 something..... Reason I ask is because I'm looking to order these lugs hopping to grab more thread through the rims.

    These look correct?

    That is the correct size / pitch 7/16, 20 ...

    But those ET or Extended Tip lugs will only work with certain wheels.

    Make sure the lug nut tip doesn't bottom out / stick through the back of the wheel farther than the "hole depth"

    Awesome! I thought so, just wasn't 100% sure..... I checked on my rims and I believe I should have enough clearance. If not, no big deal.

    Anyways, thank you so much for the fast response!
