Hi; I've been reading these forums for a few weeks and have found them really helpful in thinking about what/how I might like to tinker with my truck.
Lo and behold, take-offs from a new 2013 appeared on Craigslist, 4 alloy wheels with new BFG Rugged Trails (I've read they're not everyone's favorite, but the price was right) for $1000. My old wheels are shot cosmetically from MN road salt and I will need new tires before next winter, so I went ahead and grabbed them.
I noticed the 2013 lug nuts were shorter by something like a quarter inch than my 2004's. Can I just re-use my old lug nuts or do I need the 2nd gen lugnuts?
Anything else to be concerned about, or do I just slap the new ones on when I finish running the tread on my current ones? Is there a market at all for 1st gen pitted rims, or am I heading to the scrap yard when I'm through with the swap?
Thanks in advance, and also howdy. My leaf springs are partially inverted, so I'll probably be asking about that later, before I start towing a Livin Lite aluminum camper this season.
