Fiesta ST Lug Nuts
The lug nuts on your Fiesta ST have a very important job, but not necessarily a very glamorous one. The role of lug nuts on any vehicle is to secure the wheels to the wheel studs. This connection securely attaches the vehicle’s wheels to the axle. It’s very important to have tightly secured lug nuts. If the lug nuts on one of your Fiesta ST wheels became loose, it’s possible for the wheel to roll right off your vehicle while you’re driving. It’s never a good day when you spot a wheel rolling along the highway that looks suspiciously like one of your own wheels.
Symptoms of Loose Lug Nuts
Most drivers can recognize the signs and symptoms of loose lug nuts. If you notice any of the following, it’s a good idea to get your vehicle up on a lift to inspect and tighten all loose lug nuts as soon as possible:
• Vibration — Felt in steering or whole vehicle while driving. When the wheels are loosely secured to the wheel studs, there will be some play and wobble in the wheel. This may be less noticeable at lower speeds, but as you accelerate, this wobble creates a noticeable vibration.
• Physical Inspection — Loose or missing lug nuts. If you inspect your Fiesta ST lug nuts, and you notice any loose or missing lug nuts, it’s important to address the issue sooner than later. Lug nuts can become loose for a variety of reasons, but usually it comes down to over-torquing or under-torquing the wheel nuts.
Upgrading Fiesta ST Lug Nuts
New Fiesta ST lug nuts are much smaller than factory lug nuts. This comes from a design that features a thin wall on the Fiesta ST lug nuts, so it fits much better with your new aftermarket wheels. Every set of Fiesta ST lug nuts also comes with a custom, high strength lug nut key that is small enough not to damage your wheels when you go to insert it, yet strong enough that you won't fear breaking anything when you install or remove your Fiesta ST lug nuts.
Lug nuts may not be a very noticeable or stylish part of your car, but as you can see, they play a very important role. Some Fiesta ST owners choose to show off their lug nuts with stylish anodized versions. This subtle and discreet upgrade also has a very functional benefit.
Over time, factory lug nuts can become rusty and detract from the look of stylish wheels. High-quality anodized lug nuts will hold up to the elements and stay free of rust. Additionally, these stylish Fiesta ST lug nuts come in several attractive colors to complement the look of your Fiesta ST.
