Looks like a prior owner forced a lug nut to thread all the way home despite it not really wanting to fit.

Time to take a tap/die set to the hub and then make sure I have a clean/good lug? Assume so but wanted to double check (please).

Thanks!

Try a thread chaser first. They help to reform the existing thread rather than cut new.

Thanks Mark.

Do the lug threads give up first or the hub?
