It'll be the standard bolt for whatever van chassis the motorhome is build on unless you have nonstandard wheels, alloys for example sometimes use different bolts.

Not many people will know the diameter length, taper if applicable and thread of a wheel bolt. If you have a sample a garage could measure up the diameter, length and pitch for you.

More info would help. Do you have the van?

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

Thanks for reply, yes I own the van. I have a new wheel clamp to travel with but it recommends that a locking wheel nut be used as well. I will try to take a nut off and get it measured. I have seen locking nuts for a Fiat Ducato advertised online at M14 and M16 sizes. There are very few accredited products several cheap versions on eBay.

Ebay will be fine if all it does is hold a clamp.

You could measure the bolt yourself. All you need is diameter, length and thread pitch. Pitch is how many turns there are in a centimetre for a metric bolt. It will be metric.

A garage will use a pitch gauge but you can use a ruler and count the turns in a centimeter.


Look here: https://wheelpcd.co.uk/fitment-guide/fiat/ducato/2020/


This example from there "Fuel Type: Petrol/LPG Bolt Type: M14x1.5" tells you that a petrol van uses a bolt with a diameter of 14mm and a thread pitch of 1.5mm giving you six full turns of the thread in 9mm. It's not complicated.

You can measure a bolt yourself. There will be helpful guides on YouTube.

A good mechanic will tell you by looking at it. The bolts may even be marked.

Go to a diy store. Find the nuts and bolts. Find a nut that fits one of your bolts and runs up and down it freely. Check the label on the bin it came out of and you'll have the diameter and thread pitch. The length is easy.

Most likely on a Ducato. See below for data. Light chassis are either 15” or 16” wheels and stud will be M14 x 1.5. Heavy chassis will be 16” and stud M16 x 1.5.

You can measure the centre hole in the wheel if it’s 16”. The light chassis is around 71mm dia and the heavy chassis is around 78mm dia. In 2013 it is unlikely to have 16” wheels on a light chassis.
