I need to replace a couple of the Lug nuts on my 2015 Model S. Chrome color. Any suggestions?
Take one from each of the other wheels?
Last year I bought the whole set of Gorilla Lug Nuts to replace the stock version. Happy with the result. Much sturdier than the stock ones which have hollow heads.
What happened to the lug nuts to warrant replacement?
jordanrichard don't know. I had been going to a local tire place for routing rotations. They went out of business. Went to Costco and they noticed that their tool would not fit on 2 of them...somewhat damaged...who know how. I told them to do what they could and after a lot of elbow grease, they were able to get them off. Obviously need to replace them.
Mike G thanks.
The lug nuts in 2015 had a welded on soft metal cover that would dent if you didn't get the socket on all the way or if a worn socket was used with impact wrench. The new ones Tesla supplies are hollow with a plastic cover you can get them from the Service centers. Or as someone mentioned above, get Gorilla 61147CX solid nuts. They look a little different in that they are not flat on top.https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00G91GQ8E/?coliid=I1LA1XIV7479WO&colid=28FJOB...
No mystery here, 14mm dia. 1.5mm pitch. ....But then Tesla owner do SO enjoy mystery. LOL

Does anyone know of a manufacturer utilizing titanium for the lug nuts for the model S ?
I meant to also add to the thread above;
Is anyone using the titanium lugs? Are they happy with them?
I have seen these as detailed in the link belowhttps://www.acerracing.com/products/m12x1-5-titanium-lug-nuts?variant=14...
I had mobile service do a winter wheel swap, but he couldn't get the lug nuts off. He said my nuts were swollen most likely from another shop using an impact wrench. I took the car to the service center and they replaced all of the nuts and did the wheel swap under goodwill.
I won't say it.
Haha! C'mon. Say it! :)
Anyone know the torque specs for the 21" twin turbine wheels?

thanks for the reply. I just ordered the titanium lugs in the link below. I think the sonic grey twin turbine wheels will look better without the plastic caps and these lug nuts.
Wow, that's some spendy nuts!
