Stainless Steel locking lug nuts

Anyone,
Help, I had tires rotated before leaving on a trip. Noticed air pressure low on all tires found out 80 PSI. Tried to wheel caps locking lug nuts off and the tire location put them back on at at over 140 PSI. Needless to say the 2 (total 8) stainless steel got damaged taking them off. What size and where can I get new locking stainless steel lug nut covers. I have a 2005 Winnebago Adventure WFG 35U.
Thank you
Phil

I don't think I understand what the lug nuts have to do with the 140 PSI tire pressure.

Not all lug nut covers come off on some wheel configurations.

I assume 140psi was supposed to be 140ft / lbs.

I think that he meant to say that the chrome wheel simulators were torqued on with 140 ft pounds of torque. These chrome covered wheel nuts do not need that much torque, there are 8 regular wheel nuts holding the actual wheel on, that do need to be properly torqued.
The extra torque has probably squished, broken the stainless cap. For replacement go to a truck stop, with an old one in hand. The should have bins of different sizes, compare diameter, thread pitch etc.

Are you looking for the nuts that hold the simulator on?

Camping World had a pack of the covers for my rig's lugs in stock and reasonably priced (surprise!) the last time I was in there. I bought them. My simulator lug covers tend to suffer a lot when I remove the wheels. Now that I have spares and know where to get more I don't worry about them.
