Review of Americana Accessories and Parts AM90049


Today we're going to review part number AM90049. This is the Americana 1/2 inch by 20 trailer wheel lug nut with the chrome-plated finish. The 1/2 inch by 20 designates the size of bolt that this will fit on; 1/2 inch is the diameter and the thread 20 means 20 threads per inch. Usually on most lug nuts they will be stamped. If you see on this one, it'll say 1/2 inch by 20 to let you know what size this is. This also has the standard 60-degree cone you can see here that will fit the 60-degree taper of the wheel you put it on.

It is a chrome-plated finish for durability and corrosion resistance. To give you a measurement on this; overall length of this lug nut is 1-3/4 inches and the hex head size or socket size you would need to use on this is 3/4 of an inch. I happen to have a deep-well 3/4 inch socket here, you can see it fits perfectly right on there. Just wanted to show you on your trailer wheel, most trailer wheels will just have a standard open-end small lug nut. This longer lug nut with the closed end you could put on there. It gives you a little bit longer reach, also a nicer finish, but the main advantage of using the longer lug nut is lots of times people will change from a steel wheel to an aluminum nice wheel and the aluminum wheels usually will have a deeper middle to where your lug nuts are so instead of having a shorter lug nut like this on it you need a longer lug nut so you can access it with your socket.

These longer lug nuts like this will work a lot better in the aluminum designed wheels. That should do it for the review on part number AM90049. This is the Americana 1/2 inch by 20 trailer wheel lug nut with the chrome-plated finish. .
