It was at this point I discovered that the factory-supplied tire iron did not fit these lug nuts — Solo backpacking in Paddy Creek Wilderness, March 2024. Copyright © 2024 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.

It took three hours to get someone to come out with the right tool to switch the tire.

Later research uncovered the fact that this is a problem with several Ford models. The lug nuts swell! Needless to say, I have now had new lug nuts fitted that will not swell.

Somehow, Ford dodged a class action on this because they are not considered ‘unsafe.’ Bah!
