Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Lug nut covers are a bit shy of threading onto the lug nuts,maybe they are wrong? They measure close to 1.125".I have not been able to find specific info, so hopefully you can help.
Your wrench size should be 22 MM and the thread size should be M14-1.5 and its a right hand thread

the lugs should have a flat washer and a spring washer the lug should have a long cylinder shape on one end that is tapered to tighten up the wheel the washers hold the plastic hubs in place you might try a wrecking yard or a dealer for them

The black lug nuts are the lug nut cover that you have to unscrew off the lug nut it self to remove the wheel cover. Once the wheel cove is off you'll see the real lug nuts holding the wheel in place, note do not over torque the plastic lug nut cover when re installing the wheel cover. The plastics are know to crack and will not hold the wheel cover on the wheel any more cause you to lose them on the hy way. Good luck and be safe, oh and the plastic lug nut cover is attached to the wheel cover so do not try to separate them from the wheel cover.

I put in some time at an auto salvage yard. Aluminum wheels were big sellers and not something we wanted to damage.
When the lug nuts needed some persuading, we got out the high impact 12 pt deep sockets.
First try we used the correct size.
If they were stripped, one size smaller. We hammer them on to the lug and use a breaker bar with a pipe extension.
The only real problems we had were getting the lug nuts out of the sockets.
Good luck and best regards,

Testimonial: "Most helpful although i am still having problems, it seems that the lug nuts are so soft rather than loosening the nut the socket just spins on the nu"
Good Evening, this is something I run across alot and mainly it tends to be the hubcaps. And I would first off try to remove the hubcap first an drive it and see if that is the issue, if you still have a rattling noise then investigate further maybe a sway bar link or such. But always look at the obvious first, usually it is something minor that can be overlooked. Take your lug wrench and loosen all the plastic caps and once you have them all loose the hubcap will come off. Hope this helps.
