    I know, probably simple, but haven't looked at this for years.

    Conical lug on Weld R-TS S71 (17") lost a few threads but the stud is fine. Found these Gorilla Spline 1\2" - 20 from other wheels in the garage. Will they work on these wheels until I can get a new set? Seem narrow.

    If they fit the stud and wheel I don’t see why not

    Yes, spin one on a stud...if it goes on good = good.

    I tried a set of those narrow spline drive lugs when I installed Torque Thrust M wheels. I torqued them three or four times and they would not stay tight. Put the stock lugs on the new wheels and they worked just fine. Eventually replaced the stock nuts with Gorillas that have a wide (bulged) seat and no problems with them.

    Thanks all. Put it on there until I can get a new one. It torqued down so it should be ok for a bit.

    100's of passes on spline drives with my welds. You are good.

    Good to know. Went to Advance Auto and they had the same size as OEM so bought one. May swap all 10 for the spine ones since these just sitting in a box.
