Default Wheel Lug Thread Chaser

What is the correct size die to use as a thread chaser for the wheel lugs that the lug nuts screw in to? 31 SW Town Sedan.

You might want to use one of these or similar for such tasks. Dies cut away metal, these leave more metal there.

WOW fine print looks like “Made in USA” and reasonable price!
