OEM Lug Nut Sleeve separation issue

I have an 2010 off road I bought last month. It has 13k miles on it now and it has the OEM wheels. I rotated my tires today. I noticed that a couple of the lug nuts tightened down on the studs fine but I can feel a little play between what seems to be a chrome "sleeve" on the lugs and the lug it self.

Is this common and will this cause any issues now or down the road?

This is common. Usually on older Lugs tho. once the sleeve comes off the lug is just the next smaller size. if you try to use the factory wrench you will strip the lugs.

Would you happen to know the specs for the lugs?

No. I dont sorry. just head over to an auto parts store, they should be able to tell you. Oh and aluminum and steel wheels use different style lugs. just take one of yours off to match.

Thread and pitch is 12x1.5.

And are you talking about the washer on the lug being loose?

I think he is referring to the chrome sleeve over the lug nut.

Ah, i did not realize they actually have a sleeve on them. I assumed they were just chrome plated on the base metal.
