Our Lunar also needs different nuts for the steel spare, so I would think they are a standard item and should be available from the supplier who sells the wheel. If not any caravan dealer should have them.

JT, glad you got it sorted, on our Coachman the spare is a steel, normal is Alloy. Coachman state we can use the same wheel bolts, even though, they will go deeper into the hub. :dry: must try it.

Do your bolts have a different torque when used on the steel spare wheel?

Yes there is a difference, 65 ft lbs for steel and 96 ft lbs for alloy wheels. The bolts must be marked 10.9 for alloy wheels but can be used for steel wheels.
