I have a 2020 SV and have been hearing 'stories' about some manufacturers (Infiniti for one as well as Ford, Jeep, etc.) going with 2 piece lug nuts (mild steel core with chrome plated cap). The core corrodes over time swelling the cap so that lug wrench does not fit. Depending upon the problem one can use a hammer to drive the socket on, a 21.5mm socket, etc. Of course, on the side of the road you may not have a hammer or larger socket so it may be a tow and/or road-side assistance.

The best 'fix' is to replace the 2 piece lug nuts with old fashioned one piece, solid, chrome plated lug nuts BEFORE they corrode.

Does the Versa use such 2 piece lug nuts?

Thanks in advance for any help.

According to my local Nissan dealer (sold car), my Versa has 1 piece solid chrome plated lug nuts. This supports my visual inspection - I can see no sign of a seam at the base of the lug nut. I will keep an eye on them ready to go to RockAuto for Dorman 611-317 lug nuts (should be 1 piece).
