Re: [FWDLK] lug nuts 1956 Mopar?



Lug Bolts? My 56 DeSoto Firedome (12" Drums) has Lug Nuts with left & right hand threads as mentioned before. The car was recovered from a Storage Lot & the previous owner was a "Take it to the dealer for EVERYTHING. So, I doubt that anything was change since she was built.
I've struggled with the Mark II VW "Hub Centric"Wheels with Lug Bolts & would never go back.

Its been my experience in 56 if the car had the smaller brakes you had bolts and the bigger brakes had nuts. The rear differentials I've seen in 6 cyl cars had bolts and v8 cars had nuts.

Plymouth used lug bolts at least thru '59. Never understood the lack of uniformity between makes, since I'm pretty sure the same vendor made all the drums for Chrysler Corporation cars.

wasn't the switch from lug bolts to lug nuts a change that occurred between the '55s and the '56s?

From my experience the ‘50’s Dodges I’ve worked on had lug nuts, the DeSotos and Plymouths had lug bolts and a guide pin. The studs and lug nuts are a lot easier to put a wheel on, don’t know why they ever used lug bolts.   Never seen a car with mixed drums; if someone has that setup maybe some drums were switched or possibly the whole axle.

What size are the lug nuts on our '56 Mopars?

I need a lug wrench and want the right one.
