Nut size - wheel cover retention nut - 2004 Suncruiser - Workhorse chassis

Just had new tires put on our 2004 Suncruise / workhorse chassis. The tech must have used a torque wrench to attach wheel covers. Can't budge them with the cheap t-bar wrench.

I need to know what socket size I need for the nuts used to put on the wheel cover and socket size for lug nuts. We are out in the boonies and I plan to by a breaker bar and socket next time I go to town.

I just keep a 4 way tire iron handy. It works on the water heater plug also.

4 way tire irons come in different sizes also. I want to use a HD breaker bar and want to know socket size for retention nut for wheel covers and lug nuts.

If you have a W series chassis the lug nuts require a 33mm impact socket, and are supposed to be torqued to 475 lb ft. I'm guessing the deco "covers" are slightly larger, but don't know their size. Some of them just "slip-on" over the lug nuts. Look to see if two or three of the covers have a dimple-those just pull off to expose the 33mm lugnut.

On our '05 the decorative wheel cover nuts are 38MM, it's possible that without valve stem extensions it could be 37MM, really odd sizes.


I have tried to remove the covers that Ed mentioned, however the covers didn't budge, even with the special pliers.

For the wheel cover nuts, I carry a 1 5/8 socket and a 3/4 inch breaker bar. I had it and it fit. I destroyed the the sheet medal socket tool that came with the motorhome.

I had the same experience just this week trying to remove my covers after new tires were installed. I ended up using a 1 5/8" socket with a breaker bar and actually had to use a 4' cheater bar on that to break 4 of the nuts loose. Somewhere on another forum or thread, someone posted the link below to the Dicor site that identifies your wheelcover set. Depending on the style you have you may or may not need to remove the chrome lug cover before removing. Its also good for replacement parts including the sheet metal wrench used to install and remove the nuts. Good luck!
