Hi all-new here.
I've posted this on jeepforum also, but either their site is messed up, or all the pc's in my house don't want to connect to that site.

I am about to order some rims to throw my tires on, but don't know which lug nuts i should buy along with them. I am ordering these from tyres1.com and they have 3 choices. 12MM x either .5, 1.25, or 1.5 RH acorn bulge. What is "RH," and which one do I want? Thanks in advance.

RH = Right hand thread
You SHOULD have 1/2x20 studs so that would be the .5.

If you give them Make, Model and year they should have the numbers.

What's wrong with your current lug nuts?

some wheels, like mags, need a slighter flatter taper on the lugnuts to properly mate up. maybe he's picking up a set of those? they don't usually make them as much lately though. so maybe just getting new chromed ones? i have replaced mine already from so many times pulling off my tires while working on the jeep.

My current ones are stripping and rusting, dont need to be stranded with a flat somewhere because i didnt want to spend 10-20$ on some new lug nuts. I ended up ordering somewhere else and they get your make/model/year and send all the right junk out to you.

Not related, but-how much does it usually cost to get 5 tires mounted/balanced? Just need a rough estimate. I can have the 2 tires (got 3 32" tsl radials for $50 total from a buddy) I bought mounted/balanced for $15 a piece, but wasn't sure if it would be cheaper to get it done locally. Stupid tire stores nearby didnt have prices up on their websites.
