    "This does not fit your 2017 Ford Expedition" says Amazon. (Like Jeff's and mine.)

    You must have stopped at Louie's Cordial and the California Brew House occasionally then.

    Somebody a while back advised welding a new nut on the top. Is that an option? I think that was for a broken exhaust stud but the idea might work here.

    Obviously its a job for a skilled welder

    I got new tires at Discount Tire for my '13 Expedition a couple of months ago. Same thing with the swollen lugs. Tire guy said that it happens to most of them. Bad metal or something. He replaced them all with new for $36.

    Contacted Gorilla, their response:

    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for getting in touch.

    For your 2017 Ford Expedition with factory alloy wheels with exposed lug nuts the lug nut part number we recommend is 61148CX (bulk, sold individually or in kits by some retailers) or 61147CX (4 pack).

    Thank you,
