Hi: kendo... I got a new torque wrench and a 21mm socket to fit our 5.0TA. That should do it!!! Alf

1/2"-20 is the nearly universal thread for wheel studs in this capacity range of trailer axles. That's 1/2" diameter, 20 threads per inch.

The correct wrench size for nuts with this thread would typically be 13/16", but a 21 mm socket usually fits adequately.

But of course, Escape can confirm or correct this.

I just have to know why you need the thread count?
You're not planning on making or providing your own are you?

If you use different wheels (a very common thing for any vehicle), the stud diameter and length need to be compatible. Some wheels require different nuts - for instance many Toyota vehicles use a different seat style for aluminum alloy and steel wheels - and to get the right nuts one would need to know the thread pitch. Those are just comments, not necessarily applicable to this question.

I'm curious too..
