    Yeah any OE lug usually has a thin cover over the lug that just expands over time. Nothing new. Look into Gorilla Auto lugs or Mcgard. They are the most common.

    I have the Gorilla six spline. Only reason for six spline is that I have a set of rims that have smaller lug nut openings.

    Yeah big problem... Oh, ditto on the Gorilla lots of options...

    August 24, 2017 — Ford swollen lug nuts have caused a proposed class-action lawsuit that alleges the lug nuts swell, crack and delaminate to the point special tools are needed to remove the lug nuts.
    The lawsuit alleges the swollen lug nuts are installed on the Ford Fusion, Escape, Flex, Focus, F-150 and F-350.

    you can remove the casing that is on the factory nuts and put them back on the car. free just a little work.
    @finalley literally lets sue Ford because of everything and anything
