Video Transcript for Redline Tires and Wheels 12CLN-L Review

Today we're going to review part number 12CLN-L. This is the 1/2 Inch by 20 Chrome Trailer Wheel Lug Nut. Now this lug nut is designed to fit 1/2 inch by 20 bolts and basically that means the diameter of the bolt is a half inch, and it has 20 threads per inch. If you notice, this lug bolt also has a 60 degree cone on it, and that's designed to fit the 60 degree taper on the wheel. Overall length on this lug nut, this is an extra long, so it's about 1 and 7/8 inches long, and it does require a hex head size or a socket size of 3/4 of an inch. I happen to have a deep well 3/4 socket here, and you can see it fits on perfectly.

Also on most aftermarket lugs you can see they do stamp the size on the lug, itself, to let you know the size of it, 1/2 inch by 20. Now I just want to show you, you can use these on your normal trailer wheel. Sort of move out a little bit, and normally your trailer wheels will come with just this small open end lug nut to hold the wheel into place. You can go to these longer lugs and you can see it gives you more to grip onto with your socket, and they are closed end. The other nice thing about these longer lug nuts like this, is a lot of your aluminum wheels, your aftermarket, nice aluminum wheels, they have a, where the lugs are, they have a very deep access to get to the lug and lots of times when you use just the standard little bitty lug, when it falls in there it's hard to get to and sometimes it's too wide, so the socket won't fit in there. So what it is recommended, is on a lot of the aluminum wheels, is to go to a longer lug like this, that'll drop into that, and this part will pretty much be almost flush to the top. Then it's only a 3/4 inch hex head size so your socket can usually get in there and access it.

But that should do it for the review on part number 12CLN-L, 1/2 Inch by 20 Chrome Trailer Wheel Lug Nut. .

Chrome Trailer Wheel Lug Nut - 1/2" - Qty 1 - 12CLN-L

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (187 Customer Reviews)

Trailer wheel lug nut fits 1/2" diameter wheel bolts and is chrome plated for durability and corrosion resistance.


Nicole, could not have made this transaction easier. She was well informed & very professional. Fadt & accurate shipping with quality products will make etrailer my go to source for all my trailer needs.
Check out my before & after pictures.


The tires and wheels look great and the shipment arrived within a week of ordering. Unfortunately, one of the boxes the wheels were shipped in was opened as well as the bag containing the 10 lug nuts. There were 4 lug nuts missing and the other 6 were loose in the tire box. Not likely the fault of etrailer, however, they sent 4 additional lug nuts free of charge!

Excellent product & Service Support.


unfortunately this did not fit my trail er


I’m loving the extended lug nuts! Can’t believe I haven’t done this before!


Always good to have a few extra lug nuts. These are perfect for my RV.


In spite of the covid delays happening everywhere, etrailer still came thru and delivered the tires and wheels I need to make my small business keep going!


Lug nuts are chrome plated and much more durable than similar nuts with the thin stainless steel jackets. Reasonable price too.

Lug nuts still look like new, but the trailer has never seen snow or road salt.
William B - 01/08/2022


Gotta have the chrome lugs with the aluminum wheels and center caps! Thanks etrailer!


I always like your products and delivery. I am baffled by one thing though. My name is David Tyler, not Nate Tyler. You have my phone number and my address, but you have the wrong name. How did that happen? I will hopefully be installing all these great products later in the week, after the monsoon ends!

Great! Everything I purchased in that order is working great. No problems with any of the parts.
Dave - 12/01/2021


In short if you are on the fence if you should do business with etrailer don’t be I just had 4wheels wheel Bering covers and lug nuts delivered on tine and complete the service was excellent Alex was my contact if I had to do all over again etrailer would be my only choice

Great if necessary would do it all over again
James - 04/25/2021


Seem to be working well.


Both products are excellent the only thing was that one item was damaged in shipment by UPS but I called customer service and they instantly sent me out a replacement.

Great no issues
Larry S - 10/04/2021


Perfect for my premium rims. Regular lugs were too short with too large of a diameter.
These lugs gave me the clearance i needed to easily mount my new rims.


Good purchase...needed the deep lugs on a smart tire carrier because it has longer bolts.


After 1 year of service I notice some rust on most of them. This is with fairly limited miles and never exposing them to salt.

Otherwise these feel and function as a high quality lug nut.


I received my rims and lug nuts today. Packing was great, the rims look amazing. Can't wait 2 have my new trailer tires mounted. Thanks 4 a great product.

They look great on our camper. Nice product.
michael a - 04/04/2021


Purchase a set of 20 to replace those on my trailer that have rusted after 8 years. Looks good and easy to remove with a deep 3/4" socket. I tend to put a drop or two of oil inside the wheel lug nut prior to screwing onto the wheel bolt to prevent it from rusting solid on the wheel bolt.

The wheel lug nuts still look like new after a year of use. I just recently removed them to besure that they didnt rust onto the bolt and they all came off easy. Put a couple s of oil back on the bolt and retighten the lug nuts.
TXRoadRunner - 04/08/2015


Exactly what youd think theyd be. Work perfectly as intended.


good product


Don't not get them

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 03/29/2022


Arrived in the utmost shape....Perfect! !!


The wheel nuts were exactly what I wanted. They are really good quality for the price. Etrailer did a good job on their shipping. Could not believe I got them that quick. Good job trailer!!

The wheel nuts are still looking good and the chrome is not rusting at all. Thanks etrailer
Rooster W - 02/08/2017


Ordered this tire/wheel combo for my older gooseneck. They look nice, and ride well.


Happy with item and service


I lost a tire and wheel from my RV. The products I purchased were perfect matches to the original equipment so I only had to buy one to match the other three. That saves me a lot of money.

The overall depth of the lug nut from the farthest out part of the lugnut to the deepest point inside is 1.25 inches.

  • Long 1/2 Inch Chrome Lug Nuts for a 2005 Hitchhiker 5th Wheel Trailer
    Since your old lug nuts were 2 inches long, I recommend using # 12CLN-L which has an overall length of 1-15/16 inches, close enough to call it a 2 inch long lug nut. I do not recommend the use of an impact wrench, not because of the damage like you have experienced but because the lug nuts should be torqued to a specific amount. For a 1/2"-20 it should be 75 to 85 foot pounds.

  • What is the Difference Between Trailer Wheel Lug Nut # 12CLN and # 12CLN-L
    The only difference between the 1/2 Inch Lug Nut, # 12CLN and # 12CLN-L is the length of each. Both are bulge style which means they have a 60 degree tapered end. The inside depth of 12CLN is 1-1/4 inches. The inside depth of 12CLN-L is 1-3/4 inches.

  • Replacement Lug Nut Recommendation for Lugs Stamped G 1/2 RH/T
    Based on the size you listed you would want to use the Chrome Trailer Wheel Lug Nut # 12CLN-L that you referenced. The 1/2 of the size you listed indicates it's for a 1/2 inch stud and the RHT stands for right hand thread.

  • Can Lug Nuts On a Boat Trailer Be Lubricated for Easy Removal
    I have never personally put grease on either the lug nut or lug stud but I have heard of others who have without issue. If you were to reach out to the manufacturer they would also say not to put grease on either the lug nut or lug stud but this is mostly just preference. If you clean the lug nut and the lug stud thoroughly beforehand and do not over-torque then you should not have too much issue with removal. If you switch to a closed acorn style lug nut, part # 12CLN-L these are less...

  • Auto Vehicle Lug Nut Design VS Trailer Lug Nuts
    In most cases they are they same, but you have to find out what angle of cone you have. If you have the standard 60 degree cone then the # 12CLN-L would work just fine.

  • Replacement Lug Nuts for a Performance Boat Trailer
    After looking at some photos of the Performance boat trailers it looks like you likely have 1/2" wheel bolts. If that is the case then the Chrome Trailer Wheel Lug Nut # 12CLN-L would be a good option for you. I have also linked our selection of boat trailer lug nuts. If you find that you have a lug nut size other than 1/2" you can use that link to find the correct lug nut or you can reach back out to me with your lug nut information and I can help you further.

  • Center Cap and Lug Nuts Recommended Parts for the Americana Aluminum HWT Series S5 Trailer Wheels
    To choose the correct center cap for the Americana Aluminum wheel # AM22330HWTB wheel that you referenced you will need to choose one that works with a 3.19 inch pilot diameter. The Excalibur Center Cap that you referenced # 319EZ, indicates that it is intended to work with wheels wit 3.19 inch pilot hole, and will work with the Americana Wheel you referenced. I have also included a link to the other center caps that are intended for wheels with a 3.19 inch pilot hole for your reference...

  • Compatibility of 60° Coned Lug Nuts with HWT AM22319HWTB Aluminum Trailer Wheel
    A 60° coned lug nut like part # 12CLN or # 12CLN-L would be perfectly compatible with the HWT # AM22319HWTB wheel you'd looked at. Either lug nut is compatible with a 1/2-20 wheel stud (1/2 diameter 20 threads per inch).

We do have the Lug Nut # 12CLN with an inside depth of 1-1/4" or the Lug Nut # 12CLN-L with an inside depth of 1-3/4" if you prefer to have new lug nuts or yours are not the correct size.

  • Lug Nuts for Karrier ST215/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire with 14 Inch Aluminum Wheel
    You will have to use a thin-walled tool because of the limited space, The # AM90070 lug nut has a 7/8 inch diameter. The # 12CLN lug nut is a small 3/4 inch so # AM90070 would have even less space. But it is longer so you would be able to get a tool on the end of the nut without a special thin-walled tool. You could also use # 12CLN-L. It is not as long as AM90070 but has the same head size.

  • Does the Karrier ST235/85R16 Radial Trailer Tire with 16 inch Aluminum Wheel Come Balanced
    The Karrier ST235/85R16 tire and wheel combination, # AM32742, is received from our supplier with the tire mounted on the wheel, the supplier does not balance the combination, but when the tire is installed on the wheel they will line the high (heavy) spot on the tire with the low (light) spot on the wheel. This does not completely balance the tire and wheel combination but it does eliminate any excessive out of balance condition. In most cases this method of lining up the high and low...

  • Recommended Lug Nuts for Star Mag 14 Inch Aluminum Wheel
    I'm sorry that happened and glad you are okay and the trailer isn't further damaged. That is brutal. It sounds like the lug nuts were not tightened down all the way. I haven't heard of any lug nuts that bottomed out and if so you would have seen the wheels not being connected well from the beginning of your trip even at low speed.

    You will be able to use either the Kenda 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" Aluminum Wheel # AM30679 or Kenda 4.80-12 Bias Trailer Tire with 12" White Wheel # AM30660 on your 2003 Top Brand 5'X8' utility trailer. Both these wheels have the 5 on 4-1/2" lug pattern you need. The pilot hole diameter being larger is fine on your trailer as the wheels and hubs are lug centric. Wheel manufacturers have made the pilot holes larger to ensure they fit more than one hub size. The Chrome Trailer...

  • Is the Karrier ST205/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire Mounted and Balanced
    For the Karrier ST205/75R14 Radial Trailer Tire, # AM32151, it does come mounted on the wheel. The manufacturer will have the heavy spot in the tire matched with the light spot in the wheel, so it is balanced in a sense. But trailer tires are not balanced like car tires are, basically because they do not have to be. You will need 1/2 inch lug nuts like # 12CLN-L (sold in quantities of 1).

  • Difference Between # AM90049 and # 12CLN-L Lug Nuts
    Other than some slight cosmetic differences, functionally speaking both lug nuts you mentioned are identical. Both will fit a 1/2 inch wheel stud with a 20 threads/inch thread pitch, and can be tightened or loosened with a 3/4 inch lug wrench.

  • What are the Right Lug Nuts for an 8-Lug Aluminum Trailer Wheel
    It looks like you have a split spoke aluminum wheel that is not unlike the wheels we carry. For the 8-lug wheels that are similar to yours we recommend trailer wheel lug nut # AM90054 which does have the proper 1/2 inch -20 size and the standard 60-degree cone. If you were using flat lug nuts then those are not going to work as well. You could also use the longer lug nut # 12CLN-L if you want because it does have the correct threads and 60 degree cone.

  • Which 1/2 Inch 20 Lug Nuts Should be Used with Americana Aluminum Mod Trailer Wheel
    Must lug nuts have the standard 60 degree cone shape and the end to fit the tapered designed of the holes in the wheel. I spoke our resident tire and wheel expert who said that you will use the regular 60 degree type of lug nuts. I recommend going with the longer ones # 12CLN-L just to ensure that you can easily get a socket or tire tool on them to tighten/loosen them when needed.

  • Availability of 2-1/2-Inch Long Lug Nuts with 1/2-inch Diameter and 20-TPI Threads
    We do offer a longer 1/2-inch diameter 20-TPI lug nut, part # AM90070 from Americana, but this nut's overall length is 2-3/32-inches, a bit short of your existing 2-1/2-inch lug nuts. This is currently the longest such item offered in your required 1/2-inch diameter and 20-thread-per-inch thread pitch.

  • Is there a Hub Stud Length Requirement for Americana Aluminum Mod Trailer Wheel AM22327
    The studs on the hub should be long enough to mount the Amricana wheel # AM22327 but you will need to use longer lug nuts such as # 12CLN-L because regular lug nuts will be too short and it will be difficult to get a socket on them.

  • Looking for 2 Inch Long 1/2-20 Lug Nut Removable w/ 13/16 Socket

The lug nut is compatible with 1/2 inch wheel studs and has a 20 threads per inch thread pitch, and is 1-1/4 inches long. It's a little shorter than what you said what you were looking for, but it would work for you.
